^ Great idea for a thread. This area has changed so much over the past 10 years, but mostly with smaller, under the radar new builds and renovations that kind of get lost in the shuffle. Centralizing them here will provide us with a clear indication of the full scope of activity in the area.

For what it's worth I think the WB area holds a tremendous amount of potential... continued development and improvement will not only help to create a thriving urban neighbourhood, but it will yield positive spinoffs for downtown too.

With the overlap between the Osborne Village area and the resurgence of this particular neighborhood, and it's unique urban identity, ie: Corydon Ave, Osborne Village, I believe it's time has finally come.

----------

I believe this particular proposal was already covered, 85-109 Maryland/Westminister.
4 Story, 44 residential Units, 44+- parking stalls, some covered, 5,6K sq. ft commercial at grade, 6 K sq. ft.of commercial space on 2nd floor. 3rd floor terrace over 2nd floor commercial space.

Proposal Applicant: 710 Westminster Ltd. – Leon Reimer
Architect on Record: Unit7 Architecture

Looking for a render but it is currently in cue before CC for rezoning.

EDIT: ^ I agree Esquire, the area holds a great deal of potential, it used to be quite the adventure in the early days, I really am enjoying it's renaissance so far.

Necessary evil? The Sherbrook Inn + pawn shop + Vendor. License to print money?

Today's Murray M column (beware WFP paywall) has a rundown of three projects along Maryland, including a rendering of the one slated for the SE corner of Maryland and Westminster:

Apparently Stella's is taking advantage of the recent fire at the Sherbrook location and is going to be reopening with an expansion.

Connecting the two buildings or what?

Great news; let's hope for more of this. A redeveloped Sherbrook Inn would be nice.

Apologies I don't have the details.
I kind of hope that's not the case though as I really like that little passageway.

The plan according to the sign on the door is to be open again in 3 months or so.

Given that time frame - I think the "expansion" will just be gaining more efficiency in the existing interior space - rather than a structural addition.

Yeah I can't really see where they could expand other than that pathway. Only other thing could maybe be the upstairs. Their regional offices are on the second floor, and that's their main kitchen so maybe just behind the scenes stuff.

Yes this is the one I was looking for. This corner is somewhat of a gateway or hub leading to the area from the south and for residents in the Westminister area. + 12K sq. ft. of CRU's will be a god send to this area. Looks like a functional design as well.

Thanks for the source article, (let my free account lapse), never re upped and paid for the info they provide. It's nice they decided to cover the area, maybe they do read SSP..;)

Urban recluse Oct 31, 2015 7:11 PM

Perhaps that tiny white building at Maryland and Sara will be next for redevelopment.

trueviking Nov 1, 2015 6:01 AM

That building is home to an architecture firm.

Urban recluse Nov 1, 2015 4:09 PM

Really? It is nondescript, and looks vacant.

buzzg Nov 2, 2015 5:58 PM

The housing project on Sherbrook is going up so fast, it's crazy. I'd love to see more of that on that street. I'd also love to see the gardens relocated somewhere else nearby... it's a prime lot and it also really just looks like a mess on a good day haha.

Urban recluse Nov 2, 2015 6:33 PM

That is true. A streetscape consisting of old homes which have been converted to stores and restaurants, brick walk-up apartment blocks as well as modern infills are dynamic.

Echoing the call for the Sherbrook Inn to be redeveloped, I do know the owner has been approached by developers: it remains unclear to me if the asking price was too high, or he simply does not want to sell. In any event, I know the Tallest Poppy plans on opening a patio in the summer, as well as exterior improvements.

I didn't know that the Legislature, Memorial Park and Vimy Ridge Park were considered to be park of West Broadway, did you?
