Yonge St block at Elm St. begins it’s transformation to what can be called a condo village. An unusual development situation is occurring on Yonge St currently and though the next five years as multiple condos are being built on both sides of the street.
The 350 block on both the west and east side of the street as well as though to CHELSEA HOTEL
will be building a series of condos, with 2 74 story condos at 356 Yonge. Presently the site at 370 Yonge current is preparing the east side site by preserving the old historical building facades.
The Chelsea Hotel will continue to operate and be the final site to be reworked into a condo.

Canadian City Parks Report: Report shows data gap around changing park use
By junctioneer On July 28, 2008
In Streetlevel, The Junction With 1 Comment Permanent Link to Development Watch – old Keele Street Canadian Tire StorePermalink The junction devoid of condo product – a sure hit for all – thoughts on junction condo development Deconstruction of the old Keele Street Canadian Tire Store is slowly moving along, rather slowly actually, with many days of seemingly nothing happening, hopefully they will keep to their build schedule as this affordable condo project will greatly change the character – for the better of the Keele St. and Dundas St. corner for the better.
In terms of anticipated success though, it surely is a win situation, even for a for-profit builder to have taken on. The current project is being developed by a not-for-profit developer (Options for Homes). The location of the former Canadian Tire Store and further back in time an A&P grocery store is selectivity brilliant, not only for its junction address, but for the views afforded by it’s location south to High Park and East to the core of the city. Also the site is a sloped, a wonderful design feature in terms of walking to, out and around the building. Hopefully they make great use of this feature with their landscaping. Another reason the project is welcomed to the neighborhood is because it replaces an empty building of no real importance to the history of the community, a building which sat vacant for years. The building’s units in terms of size are favorable with other condo projects of the same size and are reasonably affordable at a time when gigantic and expensive condos are in unprecedented demand in many parts of the west of Toronto.

About Taddle Creek from Wikipedia
Taddle Creek is a buried stream in Toronto, Ontario, Canada that flowed a southeasterly course about six kilometres long, from St. Clair Avenue west of Bathurst Street through the present site of Wychwood Park, through the University of Toronto, into the Toronto Harbour near the Distillery District. During the 19th century, it was buried and converted into an underground sewer, but traces of the creek can still be found today. The scenic footpath known as Philosopher's Walk follows the ravine created by the creek from the Royal Ontario Museum to Trinity College. is also the name of a Toronto literary magazine and of a local Montessori school.
