Yikes! Not looking good.

On the other hand, though, it's good to see Midtown get some added density. Hopefully it's for the most part out of sight.

5200 yonge looks pretty good, meets the ground well with a nice tall podium and a handsome tower.

Article regarding the 200 Dundas Street East proposal.

http://thetorontoblog.com/2012/01/08...dundas-jarvis/

TEYCC being asked to call public meeting to review proposal for 2 condo towers at Dundas & Jarvis

08 Jan 2012


Quote:
Public input: City planning staff aren’t comfortable with a developer’s plan for a 2-tower condo development at the northeast corner of Dundas & Jarvis Streets, so they have recommended that Toronto and East York Community Council (TEYCC) order a public meeting to get Toronto residents’ input into the proposal.
Quote:
It wants to redevelop the site into a new mixed-use residential complex featuring two towers — 48 and 35 storeys, respectively — that would rise above a podium ranging from 2 to 10 floors in height.
Quote:
The proposed condo complex would contain 693 residential units (condos as well as “purpose built student rental housing” for students at nearby Ryerson University), office space, street-level retail, underground parking for 352 vehicles, and 701 bicycle parking spaces. 450 of the residential units — 65% of the total — would be 1 bedroom, 35 would be bachelors, 139 would be 2 bedroom, while 69 would be configured as 3 or more bedrooms. The 48-storey skyscraper would soar 151.85 meters high — approximately the same height as the 250 Yonge Street office tower at the Toronto Eaton Centre six blocks west. City planning reports indicate the project’s architect of record is Page + Steele/IBI Group Architects of Toronto.
Quote:
The developer met with city planning staff in May and October 2011 to discuss its proposal; however, on both occasions the planners said they couldn’t support the developer’s rezoning application “in its current form.”

“Staff indicated concern with the overall height of the project, the relationship with and transition to the adjacent Neighbourhoods Area, and the type of units being proposed for the student residence component,” the planners explain in a November 10 2011 preliminary report to TEYCC.
Quote:
City planners have recommended that a community consultation be held for the project in February, and say they are aiming to complete their final report on the proposal later this year. The planners’ request for directions to hold a community consultation is on the agenda for the January 10 meeting of TEYCC.
Quote:
Area residents say they suspect highrises are in the cards for the southeast corner of Dundas & Jarvis, too — currently a block of low-rise retail shops, including a Ho-Lee-Chow Chinese takeout restaurant.

Rumour from UT via urbandreamer via twitter is that the Canada Tower site on Temperance Street has been purchased by Lifetime Developments of Bisha and Karma fame.

CentreCourt Developments and Lifetime Developments are pairing up for this project, like they did with Karma. 54s although I wonder if they'll go higher?

www.CanadaTowerCondos.com was literally registered 5 days ago, but may be a mirror site by a realtor I follow.

Also recently www.OneYonge.com was registered but it doesn't look like it's associated with a developer...or does anyone have any info otherwise?

Hey guys since there is a lot of talk about the upcoming BIG buildings in Toronto you might be interested to see what he has planned for Vancouver:
http://www.glessnergroup.com/images/...lessner_12.jpg

I've seen his Toronto proposals and I think I like the Vancouver one a bit better, but they are all very cool and unique.

So Toronto's BIG designs will be less interesting than Vancouver's and shorter as well? That's a bit of a downer.

At least we'll get two of 'em.

Leftcoaster--could Westbank be teaming up with Oxford to redevelop 2 Bloor St West/Cumberland Terrace? The heights match up and I heard an announcement is forthcoming re: Cumberland Terrace teaming up with a mystery developer.

And what is downtown to you? For me downtown ends at Dundas. North of that is Midtown. So could it possibly be for Bloor?

I can't say for certain, but I would be surprised. They have no history and I have heard nothing about it.

No one anywhere would consider where these towers are going up is downtown.
