More density coming to the Queen West/Dufferin area. This is excellent news, the mid-rise projects in the area (initiated by Steetcar Dev) are turning this area into a mini-Freedville. The elimination of the Dufeferin Jog has done wonders in turning this crappy area relevant again.

440 DUFFERIN ST

OPA / Rezoning 11 320041 STE 18 OZ Ward 18
- Tor & E.York Dec 2, 2011 --- --- --- ---
OPA and REZONING application for 3 new mixed use buildings with common underground parking garage. All buildings have ground and second floor commercial / industrial uses and remaining floors are residential. - 399 residential units - buildings range between 8 and 24 stories - 340 parking spaces - 2 levels below grade parking - 246 bicycle parking spaces.

Temple of boom?

The new owners of The Zen Buddhist Temple at 297 College Street want to redevelop the site into a 15-storey condo and 20,000 sq. ft. retail space. Naturally, neighbouring Kensington Market residents and retailers aren't too keen on the idea.

BY: STEVE KUPFERMAN
MON DEC 5, 2011
LOCAL NEWS


Quote:
The Zen Buddhist Temple at 297 College Street, situated on Kensington’s northern border, was owned by monks until May. Now it’s in the hands of Tribute Communities, a developer. The company is proposing a 15-storey condo tower for the site, with approximately 20,000 square feet of retail space, subject to City approval. The rumour currently circulating in the neighbourhood is that Loblaws is in negotiations for the location. Tribute spokespeople say it’s still too early to say who the retail tenant might be.
Quote:
“We’ve been talking to a whole bunch of different potential retailers to see what would be the best fit for the site,” said Steve Deveaux, vice president of land development for Tribute. “We think a grocery retailer would be a good tenant. Or it could be a drug store, something of that ilk.”
Quote:
Martin Zimmerman, whose Freshmart is currently the closest thing Kensington has to a supermarket, is, like other neighbourhood business owners, nervous. “People who come to Kensington Market know that the market pretty much closes based on sunlight hours,” he said. “The larger grocery chains are open until 11, sometimes 12 [midnight] and, if you’re a student, or if you’re working somewhere, you become trained that you don’t have to rush to Kensington Market.” Business, he worries, would flow to the supermarket, leaving the neighbourhood’s independent grocers to suffer. Freshmart would be in an especially precarious position, because it carries Loblaws’ products. “The larger corporations can afford to do the huge loss leaders,” Zimmerman added. “I think it would be detrimental to the Market.” Even neighbouring Chinatown could be affected.
Quote:
Yvonne Bambrick, coordinator of the Kensington Market Business Improvement Area, has similar reservations. “I don’t want to see a Loblaws there,” she said. “I think that is extremely bad news for the neighbourhood. I don’t even want to see it being discussed.” The fear is that competition from a large corporate food store would cause Kensington’s small grocers to close down and be replaced by restaurants and bars, turning the eclectic area into yet another party scene reminiscent of Little Italy, to the west.
Quote:
A second major development project is gestating on Kensington’s western border, where RioCan, a shopping-centre developer, has assembled a large plot of land around—and including—the current site of Kromer Radio, at 420 Bathurst.

The area surrounding Kensington has long been ripe for development of one kind or another. It’s a low-rise strip in an increasingly high-rise city, as Neil Rodgers, vice president of acquisitions at Tribute, is quick to point out. “It really represented a location where there wasn’t a lot of competition,” he said. He compared the area to Queen West before its development boom. “We saw College as having similar up-and-coming qualities.”

That design looks very promising. I always wondered when HK would finally enter the Canadian market. I love the pattern on the glass and terrace gardens and of course the streetscaping.

But they couldn't have picked a worse location imo. This would have been stunning around King and Spadina or would have added some excitement to the area south of Yorkville.
