Dear WRConnected Users: Three whole years! We've grown so much over the past three years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. To this point it has been funded out of my own pocket. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover all of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

64 Margaret Ave and 217 to 229 Victoria St N
Developer: Vive Development
Address : 64 Margaret Ave and 217 to 229 Victoria St. N.
Project: six story apartment facing Victoria St and two and half story apartment facing Margaret Ave

News article from The Record.

Interesting that the six storey structure (facing Victoria St) will be wood.

It's surprising to see how they're trying to almost replicate the look of the old Breithaupt home. Quite unusual.

I see that the driveway to the complex would give onto Margaret - I couldn't see car access to/from Victoria for a building that size, so this makes sense.
What will be important to note is that for all the efforts to make the Margaret building heritage quality, we're effectively saying that it has to be 60% smaller than it's neighbour for the sake of heritage. As well, I'm expecting that it's no coincidence that the 18-unit heritage-styled building requires an additional 94 (likely to be far less special and unstyled) unit building to subsidize the costs.
Interesting proposal.

Makes me think back to the other Margaret St proposal from a number of years ago. I always have thought that the civic district (is it still branded that?) has a lot of untapped potential.
Interesting to note that Stephen Litt is behind this project under another development company.

He seems to have his hands in quite a few cookie jars
