689 Oxford St W - 22s
 
New 22 floor tower proposed for 689 Oxford St W. Actually off Capulet behind the small plaza.

Certainly an improvement over the Drewlo Dreck that permeates Crapulet Way Area.

Will be the tallest in the vicinity.

Nice looking building. Too bad there's not a chance they get 22s approved there. If Tricar couldn't get their building at North Centre approved, there's no way this one is. I wonder what their realistic number is when they asked for 22? I'll admit if I'm wrong when we come back to this 3 years from now when it's finally approved lol.

I would expect this to be approved by city without any issues. Regardless of the few nimbys who may complain. It meets all the desires of the "London Plan".


Not sure this developer has any high rise experience thou. Kind of like York in that sense in they appear to be expanding out from retail plaza projects.

Tricar's proposal met the plan as well and look at the field of weeds that still sits there.

I suspect Tricar will sit on that Masonville site for a number of years and resubmit in the future when we have a new city council and further development at Masonville has happened. By then the anti density NIMBY's will have moved on. Tricar is busy with their Sunningdale project, their water front tower in Sarnia and multiple towers in Guelph. Hopefully they come back with a 25s plus tower at that time. :notacrook:
