Apparently the Canadian tire currently on that site is moving to a new store to be built to the south in that abandoned construction pit. Will be similar to their Lakeshore East store, with parking and a few smaller retail units on the ground floor and the main store on the second level.

Those are pretty big buildings, but they did do an alright job with trying to transition them within Leaside. Still, in my opinion these would be better as shorter and less boxy and with smaller floorplates. I think 20 floors max. would be seen as better by many residents in the area..something akin to the couple buildings going up just west of here, but more sympathetic and human scaled. Of course, what I'm saying is moreso what I wish could happen with a redevelopment.....and is not realistic to what the development industry and city allow. I'm expecting lacklustre development here to be honest...this rendering already looks like complete crap.

The Regent Park proposal also feels a bit tall, considering the highest buildings going up over there are around 29 floors, but I was just thinking there would be more of a focus on midrise and balanced density....I believe someone from Daniels group mentioned it.

That's good. That site's an eyesore and should've been redeveloped sooner.

An honest to God spectacular proposal for Ottawa! Main+Main is proposing what could become the tallest building the the CBD (by a few meters). The complex would add 930 residential units downtown, a well designed urban park and a large retail space that could fill a void in the downtown (grocery store, hardware store...)

Thanks to csbvan for posting this. The benefits of this to Kelowna's downtown will be massive.

Here it is!

I'm really not sure where to post this? If someone has a better suggestion, just let me know.

The proposal to turn portions of Water/Duckworth Street into a pedestrian mall is moving ahead. Currently the City is discussing options with downtown business owners. The two options on the table currently are a full-week shutdown for the summer, or just on weekends for the summer. Hopefully they choose the former so they can get a more complete understanding of how it impacts their bottom lines. I'm hoping we get a few blocks permanently blocked to traffic, cobbled, the works.

This is the first time in a long time that City residents feel overwhelmingly in support of something properly urban.



This would be in addition to George Street (just left and above the first red line), which is already pedestrian only evenings and nights.

This is spectacular. One of the best I've seen in this thread in a long time.

Heritage retention, Toronto style...

As opposed to what? The pedestrian realm will look far better with a heritage building incorporated into the design, as opposed to a blank wall of glass. At street level, you really won't notice the tower above. Which is a good thing.

I dont think those houses are worth saving. It looks like they have been gutted and stripped of all redeeming design elements in the 80s-90s.

Ideally I'd like to see a brick podium that looks like the warehouse building next door.

I don't understand the heritage aspect to the houses either. Having the tower cantilever over the houses is better than the usual attempts in Toronto. Having a warehouse styled podium with a ubiquitous glass tower plopped on top creates the same disconnected effect.

The quality of Regent Park has spiraled downwards. The last phase included a tower so heinous it would make the Waterloo student ghetto gag. I can't wait to see what we get this upcoming phase.

These M Towers are trying harder and harder to be cool rather than be sophisticated in both design and urban function. I guess that's the standard of today in the GTA and the Ottawa proposal. It's an overwrought, supersized Clover on Yonge

11 storey mid rise at King st and Highway 8 in Stoney Creek. This replaces a previous 6 storey proposal.
