I believe the address is 323 windermere. A house has been torn down. The lot, which is at least an acre, sits the on top of Moss Rock, right next the park up there. There's no sign, but it looks pretty major. Lots of blasting and four bulldozers of some kind or another are sitting on the site today. A new sewer line had to be built under the street to service this. Must have been prezoned.

Anybody have any info on this?

Ah. Thanks jklymak.

Maybe I'm being dim, but is it one house, or one house on each lot a and b? I can't quite figure it out.

Two houses (one being a MFH) were removed. No rezoning. Mike Miller/ Abstract Developments is the developer. Project involves extensive blasting of a very large rock formation on the site (an extension of Moss Rock itself), on the very edge of the property line to the actual Moss Rock Park site. Once the site is leveled, scraped, and prepared for servicing, the plan is to put seven (7) SFHs on site. Price range unknown at this point, but the rumors say anywhere from $1.1m to over $2m each (rumors are based on previous projects by the same developer in the immediate vicinity as well as calls by some neighbors to a realtor who is handling the sales). The working name given to the development is Vue (for "view," get it?).

If you're interested, there is an upcoming public information meeting - not required, since the proponent does not need any sort of rezoning and is proceeding as planned, but the information meeting was requested by neighbors to the development since they were given relatively little advance info. The meeting is set for tomorrow, Nov.16, 7 or 7:30 pm (not sure, exactly) at the Fairfield Community Centre (on Fairfield Rd. next to Sir James Douglas Elementary School), hosted by the Fairfield Community Association and the developer/ proponent, Mike Miller of Abstract Developments.

Thanks for the info Ms B. That's a shocking change.

I can see the site pretty clearly from my bedroom window. There's been a hell of a lot of rock removed.

Is there a thread that anyone knows of for the Sikh Temple in Hillside Quadra?

It is certainly coming along. I hadn't known that they were moving the location so much.

I was up at Moss Rock Park yesterday and it looks as if the blasting is well under way. I could see evidence that sewer lines had been installed.

Does SFH stand for Single Family Homes? It's hard to imagine that they can fit 7 houses in that spot. The view is great, of course, but paying upwards of $1 million for a small house seems a bit rich for me. Who can afford this stuff? Not me . . .

^Yes, SFH = single family homes.

What's the name of the condo building on Doug and Blanshard in JB? The one built in the nineties. You know the one with the pubic art "Night is for sleeping. Day is for resting"?
Is there a thread on this one?

This one.

VHF, I remember the goofy building that was in it's place before the Landmark. If my memory serves me correctly it was owned by some sort of weird apartment owner that was always in trouble with building inspectors. Any memory?

Don't know if this is the right spot for this but here it is. I just received a notice of community meeting, development proposal for 740 Hillside. I guess it's the first step for Andrew Sheret to move in. New zoning and removal of existing buildings to be discussed.

Have we talked about this one? Construction has begun.

I'm trying to wrap my brain around the phrase "trendy Royal Oak" but admit the area is convenient (Commonwealth pool, lots of shopping and a nearby transit hub).
