You also have the parking garage on the back of the building which takes up a bunch of floors. If I recall properly the building has 5 stakeholders which have to work together for the whole complex.I think the rest are apartment units. Anyways, all that fluffy language in the press release - and a look at the building and the complex itself. Nah...
No apology required for making your first post! Welcome to UT, and please feel free to keep us up to date with whatever's happening around the complex, whether you discover it on your own or if Larco distributes information!Sorry, new guy here. I live above it, and frankly, Larco has done a crappy job of advising the tenants of the plans. I didn't know it was going to be a W hotel until today, and I doubt many of my neighbours know this either.
I lived there in the 80's & 90's, best apartment I ever had, except no balconies. The Concourse was a dump - the retail section at the north/east end was empty for a decade, a dreary food court beyond that and pink & purple neon running along recessed areas of the mall ceiling, when it worked. The reno. finally happened about the mid 90's, the empty retail end was demolished and became the "below level" HBC and the mall was brightened up. I remember the Concourse with the ceilings stripped, there isn't much room above the drop ceiling, in fact, there's no room. It's all HVAC, pipes everywhere and then concrete - probably 12' - 14' from floor to ceiling slab. No ceiling height can be gained in the Concourse, but the HBC store has lots of potential.Sorry, new guy here.

It is going forward so get ready. Probably still a few years out but 2024-2031 or so is probably not going to be too kind to Yonge and Bloor.just taking a look at some of the comments - all this is a change to the 70s street façade but odd the city is allowing encroachment onto the sidewalk. If this Yonge/bloor subway enhancement goes forward this entire area may be dug up for a really long time (look at union).View attachment 215301
