December 9th - No ice skating this winter as the pond is being drained :(

Updated architectural plans posted in September - this has gotten The Cheapening™ to move forward, unfortunately.

Parking has been cut substantially to a single level under each building with 158 spaces for 494 units (0.32/unit).
Yikes. Don't build it at all!
.32 parking spaces per unit will be a hard sell at full market rates. This probably won't be full market rates. The cheapening may have another purpose

Notice a shoring machine on the north side of the site today as I was heading east on Bloor today. The other 3 machines were on the east side.

Love the cutting of parking spaces and time for Toronto to eliminate all parking for future development in the city core 100% with a few share ride spots. Gridlock was a bitch today with polices giving warning to various drives as they were causing gridlock and why there is so much of it lately caused by drivers like themselves. Nothing was moving south on Yonge for over the 10 minutes I was there not including the time i walked up from the lake Shore taking photos.

Construction company had 2 flag persons at Front with Stop/Slow telling Yong drivers to go east or west on Front. They were also trying to get 2 truckloads of steel to the CIBC site with no luck for Yonge St.
