The Wendy’s is now open across the street and because of this project. Taken 13 December.

I was hoping they would tear this building down or assemble it with some of the parcels next to it and build something a little more setback from the street. The corner is so tight and the traffic at this intersection is crazy.
 
I guess the craftmanship for this building isn't top-notch...hopefully, the amenities can make up for it.
 
Now that the strip malls at the King-Dufferin intersection have been redeveloped, the City of Toronto should relocate this vehicle yard (maybe somewhere in the Stockyards?) and build some co-op housing buildings here with retail at grade to inject some life into this stretch. Right now it's a dead zone.

They could connect Laidlaw St. and Machells Ave. to King St. to improve access and walkability to the triangle north of LV. A little plaza on the west side of Laidlaw, maybe just a wide sidewalk with some trees.

With all the office in LV, transit access and gorgeous heritage buildings on the south side of the street this should be a space for people, not a dead wall.

Couldn't agree with this more and think about it every time I walk past it.
