In July, the Patient Support Centre tower for the downtown Toronto SickKids hospital was approved by the City. It's a 22 floor building which'll create some very much needed space for the hospital, which has reached it's physical limits multiple times last winter.

Also, Scrivner Court was approved....despite complaints from the public. F***

Scrivner Court blocks the view of the North Toronto railway station, and honestly, doesn't fit in with the surrounding area. The setback is appreciated, but the building doesn't relate well with the historic context of the area. That's unfortunate about 203 Jarvis....

With the setbacks it doesn't block the view of it along Yonge so it doesn't really matter that much. Except for those in existing condo's and in a few immediate houses in the area the view along Yonge is the only way the clock tower can be seen anyway. I'm also fine with mixing in modern with old when done well. The contrasts make for an interesting streetscape. All we have now at that location is a patch of grass and a surface lot with a view of a suburban style 90's looking condo.

Exciting given that this is likely the most prominent development site in the city; essentially 1st and 1st Streets.

This was demolished earlier this year.

Nice to hear of that, 50 floors with office space will nearly put this in the top 50 tallest proposals....heck, it possibly might be.


I'm unconvinced by Scrivener Court, I personally find a midrise better....just because the North Toronto station will be less of a landmark in the area, and I mean 21 floors is tall for that area.

150m is permitted, 200 discretionary and I would bet 175m.

203 Jarvis is one of the ugliest proposals I've seen in a long time...

203 Jarvis looks like a student residence building in Denmark. All thats missing is beer pong, EDM music, and cheap flourescent colored clothes.

Great use of space. Glad to see this trend of intensifying dated malls into urban centres spreading across the country.

Scrivner Court would look decent in the Entertainment District but I find it too contemporary for this stretch of Yonge.

For Bonnie Doon Mall, they're pretty much demolishing and starting from scratch?

In Ottawa, we had three (?) Sears stores left when the hammer came down including one at St-Laurent, which is also a Morguard Mall. It's directly plugged into the St-Laurent Confederation Line station. The mall is still doing pretty well, but certainly doesn't hold the same position as the city's premier mall as it did decades ago. With recent expansions and renovations at the Rideau Centre (booted out Sears for Nordstrom when they came into the Canadian market a few years ago and has attracted Simons, H&M and a few other big names with its expansion), Les Promenades in Gatineau (first to attract Simons in the area and second for H&M) and Bayshore (first to attract H&M to the market, but has had issues with the Zellers/Target space, which is now boring old Walmart).

Ovation in Vancouver looks good!

^Phased over twenty plus years with the north and east going first likely given SEARS/Target gone and proximity to tie in the new LRT station.
