Mayfair Hotel | 6 fl | Proposed
There will be no tower until some time after this project is completed, if construction is to begin next spring.

Also, that design may still be shifting so it's likely they've embargoed it for now.

Why would they? they are completely separate projects...

Same...I guess separate projects mean separate renders.

The Young Condo's was a weird render though, as it seems to include very tall condo's that don't exist yet.

Good point.  And owners.

This could be a fairly dramatic, and disappointing shift for this site:  

Quote:Seiling hasn’t seen the application just yet, but there’s a six-storey office building being contemplated on the former Mayfair site next to city hall.

Where is that quote from?   This would be one storey taller than the last proposal, no (post #314)?  What is the disappointing aspect?

That doesn't sound much different from the previously-contemplated five-storey office building.

Was it not supposed to be retail/restaurant on the ground floor, boutique hotel in the middle floors and a restaurant on the top floor?

Wasn't that a couple of proposals ago?  Hard to keep track ...

From the previous Record story:

Quote:A glass-walled office building with a rooftop restaurant and patio will be constructed at a high-profile intersection next to Kitchener City Hall.

One Young Street will feature high ceilings, large posts and beams and five floors with 53,000 square feet of space. It will have retail outlets on the ground floor, and a rooftop inspired by the U.K.-based Boundary Hotel's bar and grill in East London.
Rooftop restaurant. No hotel. And note that while it has ground-floor retail, it's still described as an "office building".

That's got to be what I was thinking.
