I drove by the site on Saturday night and it was all fenced off. Great news. Toronto really is booming. Despite all the great coverage by Toronto forumers here and on SSC, you don't get a real sense of it until you see it in person.

C$ 197,000 is really affordable for a starter in a new building. That is like $170,000 US. Couldn't touch that in California or NYC.

Interesting choice of music for a Toronto condo's website - Gospel. Do Torontonians even know what that is ?

I think it's cool that there's an outdoor pool on the roof of the podium. I don't know of any other towers in downtown Toronto with an outdoor pool (although there may be a few I don't know of).

Here I've outlined the site in red.

Even today, people greatly exaggerate the "gap" between the downtown core and the waterfront (it's nowhere near as bad as cities with freeways that are 5-6 lanes in each direction on the edge of their downtowns), but in a few years that "gap" will be gone completely when this, the Telus tower, the rest of the Infinity towers, and the rest of the Pinnacle towers are completed.

It's not really that close, probably 1300-1500 feet away.

The Maple Leaf Square site is only the south part of the section you outlined. Across the street to the north is the 30 floor Telus Tower currently under construction.

Yes. Bremner stays.

It will be a very active corner in the next few years. Telus Tower will bring a lot of activity during office hours, then a huge condo and entertainment centre, and of course the Air Canada Centre.
