I like it. This strip by McMaster is a great section to increase density with nice mid rises like this, especially considering it's a major transit route to downtown. I really wish LRT could get started and we'd see even more of these.

I find it kind of strange that it includes the church. I'm curious if the church has sold the property and plans to remain in the first floor a la Platinum on King.

The church indeed sold the property, to IN8. I don't believe they'll be remaining in the new building, though, unless they are to take up one of the commercial units, there is no space marked out for them specifically.

I believe they might actually have merged with another congregation, actually. I have in the back of my mind that I read that in one of the reports.

Edit: yep, looks like they did according to the Cultural Heritage Impact Assessment (p. 23)

To me that makes this even stranger!

This looks great. I used to park there for cheap and walk to McMaster, which was $30 a month.

I'm sure the synagogue behind this will oppose it, so that could hold this back.

IN8 is behind it too so it should get built. They have a pretty good record of building their stuff.

The positive is it won't be blocking the sun from them. And their building is a couple hundred feet behind.

I'd think the homeowners on the adjacent streets (Dow and Cline) will have the most issues... the usual stuff about parking, traffic, shadows, noise, etc.

Main West is due for change though.
