We posted this project in mid 2012 when details and an initial render were released. It’s one of the schemes that hovered in the background for a long time, but it finally headed to the Development Permit Board in July 2012.
The application was first submitted in 2008, and had an 18 storey condo tower with 150 units, joined to the Murray Hotel. That’s a non-market housing building that will remain as low-income housing, but it will get a facade rehabilitation. The new version increased the units to 164 in 20 storeys. The project is another from the office of Henriquez Partners, in this case for Kenstone Properties. Sales have been offered for a while now, and the design of the tower portion seems to have changed a bit from the earlier versions. There’s no sign of construction starting yet.
