^which could work in their favour with the current vision of council. Would be nice to see a hotel in this mix, and that also is in their wheelhouse.

They are a rental developer first and foremost, so I can’t imagine condos are going to play a big role here.

From the Ten on the 10th Q&A with Mark Chemij of Starlight. Note that IBI is the architectural firm. No condos are currently underway among the company’s 40 active projects. 40!!

Has Starlight done other developments such as this one?
Starlight has more than 40 development projects comprising approximately 12 million square feet at various stages in the development process. These projects include residential, commercial, and mixed-use opportunities.

Our dedicated team has significant development and construction experience across all asset classes through experience working with Starlight as well as some of Canada’s leading development and asset management companies on some of Canada’s most notable projects.

Who are your external development team members?
Starlight is in the process of building our consultant team. To date, we have chosen IBI Group, a world-class architect as the design lead and Deane Strongitharm of City Spaces as our local planning consultant. Both have been selected due to their extensive local planning knowledge and development experience.

Starlight Investments has scooped up another developer, leading to the cancellation of an IPO.

The Globe & Mail reports in this article (note: subscription required):

 

Toronto-based Continuum Residential Real Estate Investment Trust filed the paperwork for an IPO in early October, and the deal was set to price this week. However, the company quietly ran a dual-track process for a potential sale at the same time and ultimately decided to sell to Canada’s Starlight Investments.
 

Continuum hoped to raise around $300-million and price its shares between $15.60 and $16.50. After wrapping up its marketing roadshow, the company received orders for roughly $1-billion worth of shares.
 

While the demand gave Continuum the potential to price above its marketing range – the hallmark of a highly successful IPO – Starlight Investments offered a price too good to turn down: $20.10 per share, valuing the REIT at $1.7-billion, including debt.
 

Starlight “gave us an offer that was so superior that we had to say yes,” Continuum chief executive Dan Argiros said in an interview.

Wow. 

The growth of Starlight and many properties (in this case firms) they pick up is startling.

I’m betting the new Y will be part of this redevelopment.

Their most recent newsletter reads “Plans are progressing to find a new location for our Downtown Y, including some very encouraging discussions with potential local partners, and we will be providing more opportunities for your input (and your support) toward these efforts. Stay tuned.”

1000 units eh.  Hmmm.  This one is also near that earthquake fault.

You might even say it's the redevelopment's fault.

 

That's a lot of units. Maybe we can look forward to three blandrel™ versions of View Towers?

When the big earthquake strikes we'll all be thankful that most condo units are unoccupied.*

 

Seriously though, five Astoria towers would still come well short of 1,000 units.

You can fit white a large number of units in podiums, too.

A similar concept to Phase 1 of this project (fire hall w/ social housing above) has opened in Vancouver:

The above represents a “rough concept” of what will likely be presented at CALUC tomorrow night; more detailed renderings should be available soon.

Hehe I also noticed the typo. I guess this will rival Hudson Place one in height, but not overtake it...
