ALEXANDER AT YONGE STREET – IS THIS ENOUGH DEVELOPMENT OR MORE THAN ENOUGH?

Folks who live in the downtown district between Carlton and Alexander Streets must be wondering how much more development their neighbourhood can take.

Small shops and businesses are disappearing overnight; the former Westbury (now a Marriott) is about to come down; elderly high-rises are being replaced by new ones; the famous St. Charles clocktower & what’s beneath it may soon bite the dust; and so on.

<404-484 Yonge Street – 38-storey tower proposed>

<475 Yonge Street – 65 and 45-storey towers with a 5-storey base proposed>

<2 Carlton Street – two 72-storey buildings with a 7-storey base proposed>

<YC condos (Yonge & College), 460 Yonge Street, 66-storeys under construction>

<501 Yonge Street – 52 & 25-storey condo buildings called The Teahouse are now under construction>
