Me too. I think it'll end up being the best development Toronto has ever had

Interesting combination of design styles.

People in the neighbourhood (The Annex) had a great deal of input. They're generally opposed to large scale projects and want the area to maintain a human scale at grade.

This proposal is awfully busy looking but will end up as a test of whether this type of development works. Many of our new buildings have street frontage that's nothing more than a massive sterile sheet of glass or spandrel. They can kill a street's vibrancy and are often ugly.

Toronto does need to fix this problem but I'm fence sitting as to whether this design is something I want to see replicated.

I was worried this proposal would lose some historic houses (besides the obvious loss of Honest Ed's, which I wish could have been referenced in some way, maybe retaining some signage?). Seems that's not the case.

Looks like Honest Ed's will become something people will only reference in text books one day. It's really one of the last remnants from its era.

I heard the sign will be restored and go up on the Ed Mirvish Theatre on the Victoria St. side. Good to see it will not just be scrapped away.

It's the perfect spot for the sign. It's a Mirvish theatre, on a a great side street that could benefit from some 'razzle dazzle', and a stone's throw from Dundas Square.

Honest Ed's was a Toronto fixture for 65 years. It will be weird walking down that stretch of Bloor and not seeing it.

Being able to see Bathrust St. from Honest Ed Alley is really weird.

Mind you, in 2 years that view will be gone, maybe sooner.
