They would still be able to excavate the site for the underground parkade while awaiting the development permit right?


Yes, that’s correct

Most of the wood and debris has been cleared off site. Looks like they are moving to the existing foundation. Hopefully this building along with the Wedge will refresh the area nicely.

Nice and flat now (Captured August 22) :

Quick! The city needs to buy this piece of land and turn it into some much needed green space that is lacking in the area.

This project has been revised again.  A new letter from Townline (to the city) is up on Dev Tracker:  https://tender.victo...218132006022879

The step back on the top 2 floors works really well now.

The massing on this one is better, but I prefer the bold colour scheme of the previous iteration. This is looking dangerously close to the Yates on Yates, and we all know how that one is turning out

It looks a bit less cluttered, which is good, but I'm bummed about the color change. I really liked the dark brick that was proposed in the last rendering.

Don't put too much faith in the colour/pattern of renderings of brick. We've been fooled a lot recently.

This one went to ADP in November and seems to have been very well received. The biggest concerns seem to be the lack-luster colour and material palette, fenestration on the south side, and an opening for the music room onto the breezeway.

Sounds like the designer that chose the colour scheme should be defenestrated.
