3 New Condos beside the Islington Odeon just off the Queensway

Located just west of what was the best back bacon sandwich....

On the South side of the Queensway, behind the 3 towers by Remington, there is new construction proposed. 

A formerly industrial area of Toronto is about to see an explosion of new residential density. A new proposal for two or three condo towers has been submitted for 2 St. Lawrence Avenue, located on a 3.22-acre site just north of the Gardiner between Kipling and Islington Avenues in Etobicoke. Overseen by Kooby Investments and designed by Kohn Partnership Architects, the application seeks to rezone the subject lands to allow for residential construction

Directly to the north of 2 St. Lawrence, a rezoning application was submitted in 2014 for the construction of a two-storey commercial building along the Queensway—to include a replacement Sobey's for the Kipling Queensway Mall location which will be lost to a Gardiner interchange expansion—with two residential towers of 22 and 27 storeys just to the south. Jumping to the east, the lands of the Cineplex Cinemas east of Dorchester Avenue have been granted permission to be severed, with a rezoning application submitted proposing four residential towers of 12, 12, 12, and 20 storeys along the Queensway frontage.

Do you know this place?   just west of the Odeon Theaters? 

What do you think?

Would you like to live there? Tell me why?
