Well, the main house is being preserved.

What you are seeing is the demolition of the four storey 1912 rear hotel addition. The only reason it looks like it was in good repair is that it was recently renovated by Clarion Suites, which owned it previously. I've been inside it, it was disgusting.

Almost all the windows are replaced on the Maple Leaf Quay East Tower, and they've started adding some red panels on the facade.

Anyway, now we have new and better renders to enjoy.

I can't believe how much it towers above Nautilus, which looks monstrously tall every time I bike by it.

Also, Bazis has filed for construction permits for the taller tower.

Another quadrangle box, they are giving architectsAlliance a run for their money in terms of uninspired design.

I'm under the impression that it's 'On Hold' (minus the casino and financing) as well. That's what Oxford indicated.

Loblaws and a developer re-submitted plans for the redevelopment of the original Loblaws headquarters at the foot of Bathurst after the OMB rejected the company's original proposal which was a knockdown + grocery store a few years ago.

The warehouse, pictured below, was proposed to be completely demolished by Loblaws in its original proposal. As it is protected under the Ontario Heritage Act, the OMB did not support the company's claim that it was not significant. The OHA doesn't prevent demolition but requires that heritage attributes be identified for the purpose of conservation. In this case, the heritage attribute is the facade and its various elements, which are proposed to be dismantled, cleaned brick-by-brick and reassembled.









Source, though they totally swiped these from elsewhere so whatever

I was wondering what that building was! It seemed a shame for a beautiful old building to rot away like that.
