The next set of McMansions on George sure went up fast:


From the rear - newest ones are on right partially-obscured by trees (via Regina):


It is kind of sad that those older houses were demolished only to be replaced with cookie-cutter, $1.2million dollar homes when it is so close to an Ion stop. They could have fit some nice walk-ups (i.e. density) on those lots that would not have been out of place or scale given what was actually built.

Agreed - they're not great looking houses - very generic/suburban looking.  Whoever bought those houses is taking quite a risk - the land directly behind is not owned by the city and could be developed in the future - the city only owns the pumping station and the land on the other side of the pumping station (further away from King St.) - not to mention the condo tower proposed for the corner of King and George.

The City does not own the pumping station, it is owned by the Region and it is planned to be a park.

Yes!

That tower is about 30 years old. Some of the exterior features could be near the end of their design life.
