Does anyone think that Front west, West of Spadina has the potential to turn into a nice little neighbourhood?
I think so, if they get a little bit of non-harley davidson retail in the area. I walked through a little street with century row houses on either side and was blown away by how nice the area looked. If they could get a couple of coffee shops/neighbourhood establishments I could see that becoming a nice little neighbourhood.
The slaughterhouse needs to go first. This whole area smells horrible depending on when you're there.

Where did you hear this. All far as I know this project is going forward.
I think Mr Mtrcycl should tell us more....
It seems like there are rumors of cancelled developments for just about every building going up in Toronto. I really think guys just get their jollies being a downer and casting doubt on all the new projects. I'll believe it, when I see real evidence.

Change of status?

A friend who lives beside this development says they'd taken down one of the cranes - It's not nearly done - anyone know what's happenning here?
