I wonder what will happen to the historic building after the restoration - a clubhouse, or retail?

The historical building will be used as the front lobby, but there will still be retail. There will be a glass box for retail space (where the current "park" is) as part of the podium, and slightly set-back from the bank building to allow the facade to be more visible.

Market Wharf is one of my favourite developments to go up in the last while.

From today's NOW mag:

Heritage preservation is in trouble in Hogtown.

Developers filling the sky with cranes to erect ever-taller glass condo towers seem to care enough about heritage to go to great expense to save the facades of notable buildings and incorporate others into their designs. It’s at least a nod to the value of our architectural history.

But our entire planning system is more geared to the idea that bigger is better than to preservation. Heritage concerns are typically excluded from the broader planning and development process. At the political level, elected officials are largely unaware of the environmental benefits and economic value of protecting Toronto’s built past.

We have heritage policies, but they’re frequently not enforced.

These problems and others, like the need for more funding for Heritage Preservation Services and strengthening the Ontario Heritage Act, were identified in Heritage Toronto’s and the Toronto Historical Association’s Heritage Voices report released a year ago last month.

The rush to intensification makes those concerns more pressing today.

Not everything that’s old can be saved. The loss of fantastic buildings to make room for development will continue, and we’re all going to miss them.

But increasing development pressure is posing an even greater threat. That’s to our main streets, where lands are being assembled for future development.

What will happen to long stretches in the older areas of Toronto, along Spadina, for example, or parts of College and Yonge already zoned to encourage high-rise development?

Businesses there are surviving month to month, but the operating principle from a heritage perspective is to save landmarks only where feasible.

Catherine Nasmith, president of the Toronto Architectural Conservancy, says main streets are our old-growth forests. They breathe life into the fabric of our city.

Replacing huge chunks of them with updated retail spaces at higher rents that only big brands can afford would push out the mixed uses that contribute to economic vitality and make our streets walkable.

The real danger of undervaluing heritage? The loss of spaces that encourage enterprise and innovation.

Гуляя по Торонто, заметил очень много разных домов и домиков, именно для проживания:
- большой двух этажный дом для одной семьи и для нескольких семей;
- маленький одно этажный тоже для разного количества людей;
- панельные маленькие дома;
плюс ко всему разное расположения выходов и входов, гаражей, предбанников и т.д. и т.д.

На моей памяти я сосчитал 20 разновидностей, причём в основном разные типы домов сосредоточены по микрорайонам или по переулкам.

Интересно, кто-нибудь занимался таким учётом разновидностей ? Есть ли сайт с районами строительства разных типов домов ?

Older Toronto neighbourhoods are known for the Victorian and Edwardian styles of architecture. The bay-and-gable design is very common. However, gutting and re-development of single family homes is common and has led to a multitude of styles on any given street. Current by-laws require new structures to conform to the streets main style.

Here is a link as an example. Both 60 and 70 Vernon Street involved demolition of the existing structures. Both try to conform with the existing homes in form but with much different results.

http://maps.google.ca/maps?hl=en&bav...ed=0CB4Q8gEwAA

Although current developers may have a few elevations to choose from you won’t see such variety in a new neighbourhood.

Google Translate Version:
Старые районы Торонто известны викторианской эпохи короля Эдуарда и стили архитектуры. Залив-и-фронтон дизайна является очень распространенным явлением. Тем не менее, потрошат и повторное развитие домов для одной семьи является общим и привело к множеству стилей на любой улице. Текущий подзаконных актов требует новых структур в соответствие с основными улицами стиле.

Вот ссылка в качестве примера. И 60 и 70 улицы Вернон участие снос существующих строений. Оба пытаются соответствовать существующим домам по форме, но с гораздо разные результаты.

http://maps.google.ca/maps?hl=en&bav...ed=0CB4Q8gEwAA

Хотя текущие разработчики могут иметь несколько возвышений на выбор вы не увидите такого разнообразия в новом районе.

That's massive. I've always thought that the Holt's site could use something considerably bigger, but never expected we'd see 83 stories. Insane density with 1 Bloor East. I reckon this will be twice as high as the CIBC building next to it.
