Was looking for an old rendering of the condo project being discussed here (couldn't find it), but found this article which reminded me of another Queen Street Project. Anyone know where this one is at? I am never in that area of city, so not sure if anything started yet.

I hope this new building attracts professional tenants. Likewise I hope that the new build at Queen & 2nd fills up. Hopefully Queen Street can recover a bit. Its a great street with tons of potential. As usual, though everything is about parking parking parking. That's all that seems to matter in this town.

Speaking of parking and Queen St... I was very disappointed when the Shangri-La basically put up big blank walls (i.e. parking) on its ground floor. That's not what the street needs to become more vibrant. I wish stuff like that was not permitted. At least this new development does include some underground parking (I had speculated earlier in this thread that maybe it had only surface parking).
A friend of mine knows one of the doctors in this practice very well. The reasons they moved are as follows:
1. They outgrew the building and needed more space.
2. The doctors wanted to own their own building.
3. And parking, parking, parking. There was insufficient parking in the area for all the staff and patients.
