I highly doubt that a PATH connection in this location is possible, unless there is a move on Ryerson's part to open up Jorgensen Hall / POD to the public and connect it with 1 Dundas East.

Given the infrastructure under Yonge in this location, a PATH connection east-west between this development and Aura/Chelsea here is unlikely.

The only real hope would be to connect the Chelsea to Aura to the north (and let's face it, the Chelsea is a 3 star dump and Aura is a hot ass Canderel mess). There might be an opportunity with the development on the old World's Biggest Bookstore site but there would still be a break between it and the Chelsea.

Absolutely freaking spectacular, I hope to hell this gets approved without any height reduction! This is what the city needs to really put it on both the supertall and architecture maps! Excellent mixed use building as well which is lacking!

Would definitely be tallest in the city... wonder how long before someone builds a 100 storey?

It's a building with an exceptional beauty.
I really hope it will be approved as soon as possible and they can break ground next year.
This tower will be the signature of modernity,excellence and beauty.
Yonge street need to be rejuvenated and this project will start this trend.
So all these folks and politicians who will oppose to this tower,don't love Toronto
at all.
Toronto need 385 Yonge street to be in the Ivy League in term of architecture.
Architecture define a city and a nation.
So i hope that the city will not oppose to it.

The looming cluster at Yonge/Gerrard might end up making King/Bay look short.

The more I look at it the more in love I am with this design! It looks more like a sleek office tower than a condo and I think that's what makes this condo so awesome. The lack of balconies and the ultra modern design and sheer height make this one of my top 3 fav projects!

It will be a while before construction starts. The proposal was just submitted to city council. There are several issues which still need to be worked out. Issues of density, vehicles going in and out of the footprint corridors, waste collection, sewage, etc. This rendering is a just a very preliminary rendering, and I wouldn't be surprised if the proposal goes through revisions.
I attended the public consultation meeting. Overall, the project was received in a positive manner, and height isn't too much of an issue as long as it has a bit of a tapered look rather than a wide box. After speaking with KWT, height isn't too much of an issue as long as the structure isn't too wide. In terms of density, this proposal is actually less dense than Aura.
In regards to construction, we are still several years away. The project will have to be approved first, possibly may go to the OMB. Then it will have to go through sales. My guess is, it will take close to 5 years before construction starts.

These mega-projects take time for the approval process and a lot of time to build. Frustrating for us to have to wait.
