Redevelopment

This is the former site of the Honest Ed's store at Bathurst and Bloor where a complete city block is being redeveloped except for one hold-out building on Bathurst St which is visible in the centre right of the pic. The project includes 5 rental apartment buildings of various sizes and styles as well as a park, market and community centre. More cranes in our skyline! I'll show you a pic of the hold-out tomorrow.

It's really amazing to see so much development in so many big cities. You've reminded me that a building I worked in just 8 years ago has been leveled and is awaiting the start of new construction. I should get a picture of it before they start.

Hello,

Pretty sky, seeing cranes is a good thing for the economy. Enjoy your day, wishing you a great weekend!

The hold out might regret it.

I so love the tale. Toronto needs housing. I bet it ain't cheap, though!
My son lived in a condo he bought after he graduated. He sold it and paid off his student loan. It overlooked the trainyards. Right near Davenport where my parents grew up.

Admire the hold out, one person against the system of change, takes strength and courage to do that, hope things work out for them..
