Yes, and 17M is not a lot for a six storey and a 4 storey building plus renos.


EDIT:

What a late response from me...

Oh, do keep us posted on that one.

I see one southwest facing corner unit is up for sale and has been for some time. Price seems to keep dropping - I'm guessing because their skyline view will be directly affected by the project.

That could be. It seems that any unit ~1000 sq ft or less seems to get snapped up quite quickly, whereas the bigger units tend to sit for a long time before they sell. 113 has been for sale on and off since the building was built, I don't know if it ever actually sold initially.

An update in the Free Press today. Some preliminary work has begun while they await the city's approval of a 20 year tax freeze.

This is very exciting, and will truly act as a catalyst for the area.

Phase 2 and 3 will make nice parking lots for phase 1.

At this point, even if phase two and three are parking lots - huge win.

I think with the two behind this project, we will see results, and completion.

That's true. I'm just saying they tell the officials anything just to get their foot in the door and then they do whatever the hell they want to do.

No. Thanks for that positive thought. You have to trust some people to do the right thing. Your positive post and my negative post where simultaneous.

LOL, I would be the first to call them out if they did not have a solid track record.

I think the good thing with this project, compared to others, is there's no way it works at all (from the developers standpoint) if they don't finish the whole thing. There's no way they'll be able to make enough profit off just phase 1 to cover the massive restoration costs of the pumphouse, even with the subsidies. So I feel very confident that we'll get the whole project done, just don't see how it could work at all without the second building.

And yeah as recluse said, these guys are great. People that actually care about the area... willing to maybe make a lower profit to do a great project that benefits the city and its citizens.

^ That group certainly has a solid record of moving ahead with projects at sites that could otherwise never seem to find traction... most notably the Avenue Building, and also the Galpern Building.

The Galpern is a labour of love. Really shows the commitment of this group to the area.

I hope they don't stop. There are plenty of sites which could be redeveloped.

Mentioned this in the Exchange District thread, but lots of the boarding on windows is coming down today.

galpern looks amazing with the façade washed off, the black window trim and some new landscaping already put in along rorie. looks very "big city". also on my stroll today around 1pm, the exchange, main street and especially portage were humming with pedestrian activity of all walks of life. was great to see! if that could be sustained, it would be quite telling.

Any pics? I am so envious of Alston, as I have dreamed of doing what he does.

To see this building with new windows alone would be so wondrous.
