Those 2 Mirvish-Gehry proposals would amp up that section of King West considerably. Makes me think that the Hyatt's days are numbered. I'd be surprised if it still stood 20 years from now.

And as nice as King West's restaurant row is, they'll likely exist but with 50-80 floors above them. We're seeing a similar treatment with 1 Yorkville and 8 Cumberland?

Vancouver always looks like something out of a science fiction movie.

That's a vantage point we don't often see. It's going to be packed like sardines from one end to the other by 2025.

Yes, it is.

The One, soon to be the tallest building in Canada at 1,117 ft (340.6 m), will also be built in that location, across the street from Number One Bloor.





Oops, I didn't realize that you were from Mississauga. Never mind then, this info is not for you
