46-50 King Street East | ? | 5 fl | Under Construction

From the twitter account of Joey Coleman

New planning file for discussion. Effort Trust proposing demo and new building at 46-50 King East.

This is the old Canada Trust building south side of King at Hughson.

Reminds me of the Ryerson student building in TO. Quite nice.

^ Yeah, definitely seems to be the taste/style lately. There's a few proposals that's similar to this style.

I like it. The current building is nothing historical so it won't be a lost.

Effort Trust. Great, now this is a company that will proceed with their plans, unlike the Blanchard non-proposal a few doors down. Sad how unmotivated land holders of key parcels in downtown just sit on their duffs and expect huge returns without taking any real risks.

Good scale and lots of glass. I like it. A taller building would create too much of a weird tunnel effect since Hughson is such a narrow street. Also wouldn't fit with the rest of the Gore.

Yeah, it was the Hamilton Provident and Loan Society Building. Built in 1881, demolished in 1960.

Nice. From the looks of it, it would add a lot of value to that corner.

I really like this design. I find its very open concept but at the same time will add density to that corner of downtown. A very welcoming building. Good for Effort Trust

This will be fantastic if built as proposed (and it has something called "underground parking" -- what is that exactly?? )

Hopefully the start of a trend toward more adventurous architecture downtown. The new Mac medical building... and this... and I'm hoping the images of the "unbuilt office project" in this post in the MacNab Square thread are still alive or have provided design cues for that particular proposal.
