Proposals like this highlight how mind numbing many of our other new buildings are. I'm talking to you Bisha, Bond, and about 50 others.

There's a lengthy process it has to go through first. It still has to receive approval. If that's denied, it will likely go through revisions and then it's re-submitted for approval. This can go back and forth for quite a while. If there's some backlash from area residents/businesses they can tie things up for ages.

After approval comes sales, then permits.

While this is just another glassy box, it is a welcome change to the rather anti-urban area.

The area is low rise but what's not urban about Church/Wellesley?

Oh, by anti-urban I meant that the area currently experiences a disparity in developmental applications, compared to the nearby Yonge who is currently experiencing a great influx of such. As a result, the two streets feel as though they are different cities - one belonging to a megacity, and another belonging to a rather smaller city such as Hamilton. It gives character to the city, but I don't mind more density either. Besides, the stretch of drab mid-century buildings, as well as the historical buildings along Church and Wellesley could use some historical restoration and gentrification, aesthetically speaking.

I'm not sure it was intended but you used the "weird" emoticon.
Although this is the internet, please refrain from using such emoticons to express your disagreement with others' opinions. Especially since my reply did not contain anything malignant?

Thanks for the clarification. I used the 'weird' emoticon as urban usually refers to things like pedestrian oriented areas with densely packed buildings and access to subways/LRT. It doesn't have to do with height/scale of buildings or their condition. That's why I found it odd that you described it as 'anti-urban'.

I agree that Church-Wellesley could do with a major overhaul, significantly taller buildings, and an investment in the public realm. That said, it's already very urban imo.
