It does look like N-Blox. I like the design and I am surprised at the large size of the units and the $1.5 to $5 million Yorkville type prices. Freed has a lot of developments in the area so they must know what type of units are in demand.

Terrific little building. Fits right in with the rather eclectic/stylish and surprisingly quick way the stretch from Spadina to Bathurst has cultivated its own upscale feel.

And yes, given the concentration, the King-Portland area could very well be re-named Freedville.

According to the latest newsletter from Freed 65% of the 17 units in 500 Wellington West sold in the first week. They are half floor and full floor suites with private elevator access for every residence.

I think the forum is in unanimous agreement that this is a great project. Great modern look and very cute.

Demolition is continuing. The crane is from 75 Portland another Freed project bordering this site on the northwest.

Most of the building is gone, only the back part remains.
