Jaw-droppingly fantastic.

And if one is so interested to watch a virtual tour rendering of what the East Bayfront may look like, visit this website: http://buildeastbayfront.com/index.aspx and click on the world Animation when the page has loaded.

Community council okays the hospital's renovation plans, final approval up to city hall

10 February 2009
Toronto Star



Plans for the massive redevelopment of Women's College Hospital, which include the demolition of the main building on the site, took a big step closer to getting final city hall approval.

The project got the go-ahead from Toronto and East York community council yesterday.

Approval from city council is required before proceeding with redevelopment, which would introduce to the site a state-of-the-art ambulatory care facility by the time it is complete, around 2015.

The plan also calls for teaching and research facilities and outpatient clinical services, catering primarily to women. The hospital would not have an emergency wing receiving ambulances from across the city, and would not provide in-patient services.

The hospital would run from roughly 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. five days a week, with perhaps some extended hours for clinics, officials say.

In all, the block bordered by Grenville, Bay and Grosvenor Sts. and Surrey Place, will be redeveloped.

The project will cost "hundreds of millions" of dollars, and funding will come from the province.

A call for proposals will go out in May to seek a consortium that will design, build and maintain the facility, said Gregory Colucci, of Diamond and Schmitt Architects, a firm behind the project.

It's hoped construction could begin next spring. A new, seven-storey structure spanning from Grenville to Grosvenor will later connect to a new, six-storey structure to form one building.

The project also calls for the demolition of a 1920s-style mid-rise rental building on Grosvenor.

Some members of the public voiced anger at yesterday's community council meeting over the fact the neo-Georgian-style building - listed on the city's inventory of heritage properties - is slated for demolition.

Councillor Sandra Bussin, who sits on the community council, called for further discussion on finding a way to work the apartment building's facade into the project.

"It's a travesty this structure is going to be demolished," Bussin said, calling its architecture an impressive part of Toronto's history.

Her motion failed.

The community council heard the apartment's facade doesn't work with the design of the new hospital or the other buildings in the area.

Plus there are several similarly styled apartments in other spots downtown, Michael McClelland, an expert on architecture and building conservation, told the community council.

Instead, designers will look into ways to incorporate features of the apartment building, such as columns and arch windows, into the hospital project.

...... lets save the facade ... god forbid this city ever saving the whole building?? Progress....

This is poor mixed use - say good bye to vibrant mixed used events at the facility... with the NIMBY residents bitching about noise.

TORONTO: a model city... fun with puns.

Just a bit of silliness I had lying around - a skyline collection of some
Toronto (and area) projects composed entirely of sales centre models.

This is by no means an accurate or complete compilation (subject to availability of model photos) but an interesting way to view new buildings underway.


I'm guilty of cannabalizing the buildings from all the hard leg-work of
ProjectEnd and Solaris and others (I hope they forgive me)
and I faked a couple... but I thought it might amuse.


I also thought I'd better post it while the 1 Bloor East model can be included
;-)

I named the project models in no particular order (laziness).

What's interesting is that virtually every model has a similar angle/pov so
they all kinda look like they belong together.

Mucho SCROLLING required>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I've actually had something kicking around that I just can't seem to finish... a sorta "ultimate" future pano render of the city viewed from the southeast that sees everything from Waterpark City to the core and then all the way up to Bloor Street and beyond... it's pretty good but flawed and I lost interest in it. Perhaps I'll finish it off one day before any 1 Bloor East bad news appears.

That compilation is tantamount to an 'instant skyline'. Not bad for just a couple years of development. Repeat the process another 10 times and Toronto will be quite massive: Toronto circa 2030?

With 1 Bloor East, it looks like Toronto will soon be up to five 200 metre + towers under construction at the same time:

1 Bloor East
Ritz
Shangri La
Trump
Four Seasons

Still waiting for these four 200 metre + towers to break ground:

L Tower (fall?)
AURA (fall?)
ICE (spring?)
Singnature (summer?)

Developer sells failed 1 Bloor condo-hotel property
August 19, 2009
Toronto Star

The site of the controversial 1 Bloor hotel and condominium project, which was to be Canada's tallest residential tower, has been sold.

Developer Bazis International released a statement late yesterday saying, "A well-established Toronto developer has entered into a binding agreement with Bazis International for the One Bloor property with closing in mid-September."

The Star revealed last month that the Kazakhstan-backed company intended to sell the property on the southeast corner of Yonge and Bloor Sts.

Hundreds of buyers had lined up for weeks to own a unit in the property in 2007. Units went for half a million and up. The penthouse was reportedly sold for $25 million.

Developer Michael Gold, the Canadian face of Bazis International, had stopped making payments on a $46 million loan in December. When the loan continued to be in default, a consortium of lenders tried to place the project in receivership.

The group offered $50.5 million to Gold. But he ended up selling the property to someone else.

"It is too early to discuss future development plans. However, further details will be made available at the appropriate time after closing. Due to the confidentiality agreement we cannot comment at this time," said the Bazis statement.

The sale likely means that 500 condo purchasers will not realize their dreams of living in the city's tallest tower. They are also waiting to hear of what will become of the $70 million in deposits held in trust by Gold's lawyers.

Well, this is what the National Post says:


NATIONAL POST

Work on One Bloor to continue after loan deal
Posted: August 18, 2009, 10:27 PM by Barry Hertz
Neighbourhoods, Real estate


By Giuseppe Valiante, National Post

The creditors of Bazis International, the developer of One Bloor, have decided to drop their receivership demands after the developer reached a deal with a third party to make full payments on a $46-million loan it received to build the tallest residential building in the country at the corner of Yonge and Bloor streets.

“A well-established Toronto developer has entered into a binding agreement with Bazis International for the One Bloor property,” read the statement by the development company. The full payment is to be made by mid-September. A source close to the deal said the 80-storey building will continue as planned. In July, Bazis International blamed the poor economy for it not being able to make payments on the $46-million dollar loan it received.

The building was scheduled to include more than 592 units, a luxury hotel with 126 suites and three floors for office and other commercial spaces. When plans for the building were announced, people camped out for days hoping to buy units in the elite real estate.
