Well that'll piss off CORE for sure!

If this goes ahead I guess that corner will end up with a normal stoplight instead of the trail crossing?

I fully expect the usual #nimby treatment here. Although this is a perfect fit for the location.

24 stories total -- how far beyond the current zoning is this?

Oh, but people swore up and down the walls that only King St. streetscape was sacrosanct....surely they won't renege on that now?

Of course some will.  The question is whether the usual noise from the usual suspects will carry any weight with City Council.  Will it?

I just read through the documents and didn't see any mention of a proposed timeline - I see the first public meeting about the site is in January, though. Any guesses as to how soon they'd start building if this were to be approved?

Likely. Although I’ve mused about the possibility of having the turn from Erb on to Peppler where it is, but the turn from Peppler on to Erb be to the east. Right now those two turns conflict with each other, but that way they would not. I think with careful arrangement of lane layouts and pedestrian islands, it could be both easier for cars and safer for pedestrians.

Depends, when is a decision due?  This city council or next?

Given that meeting date, we can expect that the site plan won't be approved until mid-2019. I would say shovels in the ground in early 2020, move in either late 2021 or more likely in 2022.
