Bringing the Distillery District into the big time. This is a solid project for the area.

I'm still saying nice building, terrible loss of a heritage structure. I hope this one's shot down by the city and the OMB.

I think it's very respectable in the way it treats the heritage structure.

Builder still on track for Distillery District condo/hotel development

Published On Wed Feb 22 2012
Donovan Vincent
Staff Reporter


Quote:
The developer behind a proposed 34-storey hotel/condominium project in the Distillery District still wants to proceed with the plan, despite the city’s concerns about its height and fit for the historic area.

“We haven’t been told it’s a no-go,’’ said David Jackson, one of four partners with Cityscape Development, co-owner of the Distillery with Dundee Realty. Jackson said that, though his team believes the design is appropriate, they’re open to exploring options.
Quote:
The project, estimated to cost up to $130 million, would be the first hotel in the popular tourist area. A total of 88 hotel suites and 246 condo units are planned, and the developers hope to have the project completed by 2017.
Quote:
A preliminary city report notes the proposed height and density are a “significant departure’’ from what was outlined in the original Gooderham & Worts heritage master plan, and a secondary plan for the King and Parliament Sts. area, neither of which contemplated additions to the rack house at Mill and Trinity Sts.

The rack house, currently vacant, contains six floors of traditional racks used to house large barrels for aging whisky. Doing a hotel conversion would take a long time because the racks, which would have to be removed currently support the building, Jackson said.
Quote:
Although the quality of design is not in question, the panel majority felt the “massing’’ — its overall size — was not appropriate in that location, given its potential impact on Trinity St. and the area’s heritage continuity. There were also concerns about the shadow cast by such a tall building.

...Jackson, of Cityscape, said his team isn’t “fixated” on 34 storeys and will soon turn attention to the height concerns.

...A final report on the application is set for sometime this summer.

This thing looks like utter crap. IMO, this is horrible treatment of the heritage building. Reminds me of Aliens (chestburster).

The building should simply be converted to Lofts. Forget this lame condo addition that completely ruins the building.

I hope this one never gets the green light. That building should be left as is or made into some sort of public space or art gallery.

Agreed. This proposal is hideous and should never be built. Especially in the Distillery District. It just doesn't fit.
