Looks like this is a preliminary massing study to show the allowed density and the current owner is looking to flip the property over to an interested developer.

200 Dundas Street East, 48 & 35 storeys. Toronto

Rendering from Urbanation.

Mr. multi culturalism, I dont see many chinese,loreans,blacks,russians,Indians etc, in ur parliamentary processes, infact immigration and immigrants are fully humiliatiated... now I know you would again start sprouting non sense... but truth hurts
Um, 13 per cent of our current MPs are foreign born, and 7.8 per cent are visible minorities.

Apparently you haven't seen our Sikh representatives or Chinese representatives in Vancouver, or the Indo Canadians from Brampton, or the Chinese Canadians from Toronto.

We could do better considering almost 15 percent of the population is a visible minority - and I hope we continue to make progress. Immigration is a constant here (250000 per year), and most visible minorities have only begun coming to Canada in the last 20 years, so I think you will see many more in the near future. Black Canadians for instance surged in the 90s, along with Asian Canadians in the 80s and 90s, whereas previous to that, most immigrants were European. There is also a strong immigrant presence on City councils.

However, I would say that no, immigrants don't all succeed as well as natural born Canadians. But the statistics show that Canada does a better job than almost any other country (see above), if not any other country - and we are absolutely taught to respect other people's cultures and backgrounds. The only group that suffers outright racism is aboriginals, and only in private (but sadly also in living conditions, especially on reserves in the north).

But what is your truth? Where are the statistics to back up your claim? How are immigrants "humiliated" in Canada. What country is doing so much better, considering the surge of difference in Canada?

Yes, it was planned for 318 Richmond Street West prior to the financial crisis. Subsequently, that site has been sold and a new Teeple Architect designed tower, dubbed Picasso, is taking its place:



The Picasso design is on the left, while the old Gansevoort proposal, now defunct, is on the right.

The new design is almost the same as the tower proposed one or two years ago for the UofT College Student Residence by Diamond & Schmitt Architects:

Yes, I can barely tell them apart. Picasso above and Gansevoort are very similar.

Amplifies how low rise this part of downtown is! It's amazing how quickly neighbourhood after neighbourhood is changing. That stretch of Queen West (end of the street) might look vastly different in 15 years.

HDR selected to design North America’s first fully digital hospital in greater Toronto area

HDR, as a member of the Plenary Health Care Partnerships team, was selected to design Humber River’s new 1.7 million sq ft hospital in Toronto. The hospital will be the largest acute care hospital in the greater Toronto area and the first in North America to automate all of its operational processes. The project is the result of a partnership between Humber River Regional Hospital, Infrastructure Ontario, the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, and Plenary Health Care Partnerships. Plenary will design, build, finance and maintain the hospital for 30 years, with HDR providing full architectural and healthcare consulting services.

As the first fully digital hospital in North America, the hospital is designed to support the latest medical technology in a completely digital environment. Jerry Jeter, healthcare principal at HDR, notes that ‘although many hospitals have digital components, Humber River is the first hospital in North America to fully integrate and automate all of its processes; everything is done digitally’.

Upon entering the hospital, the ability to easily access data and information enables users to ‘connect’ from points such as kiosks situated throughout the hospital or on mobile devices anywhere in the building. Once in patient rooms, Integrated Bedside Terminals (IBTs) allow patients to control their environment, order restaurant-style room service, and communicate with caregivers and family members via video.

Doctors and nurses use voice recognition software to complete charts verbally, and smart bed technology monitors patients’ vital signs and updates electronic medical records immediately. Lab work specimens are delivered via pneumatic tubes, with results returned to hand-held mobile devices within minutes. While all this is happening, Automated-Guided Vehicles (AGVs) deliver supplies and equipment to units and clinics, allowing caregivers to fully devote their time to patient care. “The new facility is as automated as they come,” added Jeter. “The technology reinvented workflows and makes patient care a top priority.”

In addition to being digital, the hospital incorporates lean and ‘green’ sustainable design principles. The lean approach to planning emphasises the use of on-stage/off-stage areas inside the facility, as well as consistent floor layouts, standardised rooms and clinics, and centralised support spaces. Green design is realized by maximising daylighting opportunities, orienting the building to minimise heat gain, using sustainable materials and high-performance building systems, and incorporating green roofs on 50% of the roofs throughout the campus. The facility adheres to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system guidelines with a goal of achieving LEED Silver certification. The hospital broke ground on 2nd December 2011 and is scheduled to open in late 2015.
