More condos to come?

Sue was lamenting last week about stores and restaurants being closed to build more condos.

We noticed last week that the Famous PEOPLE Players building is fenced up, getting ready to be knocked down for condos?

I took KC for a walk this afternoon to check it out.

Famous PEOPLE Players have relocated to Etobicoke.

KC and I rounded the corner and headed towards Queen Street W. There are a couple other buildings fenced up, ready to go ... on the east side.

... and on the west side (this building has been closed up as long as I've lived in the 'hood).

BTW, here is the parking lot where Gord and I enjoyed the Havana Cultura Festival on Saturday night.

It's back to normal today.

Teena, I can't tell if you think it's a good thing or a bad one, or just life on the move. I live in a condo, but I hate to see lovely old places being crunched to make room for new buildings. Or worse, just being crunched, then the site abandoned.

Toronto is such a growing beast. Everytime I go there I am amazed by the amount of people and traffic. Looks like you neigborhood is going to get even more crowded.

My neighbourhood has been fighting the big condo going up at our beautiful corner. All the stores and corner business were shut down. It's going to be a mess with cars and tons of people. Very sad.

The tearing down of Buildings to put up Condo's is really depressing to me. It seems to be happening everywhere....!
