Breithaupt Block Phase III is the new Google tower that's currently at LPAT, so it's on the list, though it's not going to be 850 ft tall. Unless there's some joke I'm missing?

I am hoping that if this rumour starts circulating, Google when get 'er done.

I'm struggling with my decision between a few projects.  Had I voted for the Drewlo project it'd be for that reason.  I think it's going to set off a wave of momentum around that end of DTK


This is my vote but I'm a little biased since I live very close to it.

There's a mid-rise rental apartment building to be built next to the cemetery on Victoria South, near Westmount. It's a good height, and one day I hope all of Victoria through there will be similarly-scaled buildings along a future Ion line. It's not mixed-use, but the lot is not right at the corner of Westmount, either- it's quite mid-block, actually, but a short walk from the eventual high-frequency bus line on Westmount and LRT on Victoria.

Those thoughts are exciting to me.

I voted Station Park because it is exciting and I think has potential to be surprising. It's a big parcel, out of the way of existing developments of the scale that's been suggested. A lot of different things could happen.

Is there a render of the proposal?
