SIXO Midtown | 28 + 20? + 12? + ? fl | Proposed
I wonder what Galloway means by "Another just in for suburban ION stn."

The midtown neighbourhoods are going to be 'streetcar suburbs' once more!

I think he means there's been another submission for a suburban ION station which isn't public yet. He's tweeted about there being a big development planned for Block Line that's going to be integrated into the station, maybe they just submitted planning documents.

I presume some kind of typo? He probably meant 'justification for urban station', or something.

Presumably, yes. Despite the retaining wall being there, the curbs for King St curve towards the retaining wall at that entrance, as if there is already an entrance there, but with a mysterious wall in the middle of it. Odd that they would have spent money on a "permanent" wall rather than just some easy-to-dismantle boards or something.

In the context of the excavation that will be required, that retaining wall is “easy-to-dismantle” — just unstack the pieces and take them away.

Thank you all for the replies and GtwoK for the picture.

I do like the renderings they've released recently, although I don't like how the edges of the buildings curve - but that's subjective. The second render honestly looked the best, especially the court yards. We'll have to see what they finally decide to build. Developers often change things between when they announce the project going ahead, to when they finally start building. This is one project in the region I don't have the capacity to get more info on in my line of work, so I have no idea.
