Quoting from Elizabeth James’ article about the small business tax gap in the News today:
“On a much brighter note: I could not attend the July 30 public meeting where the Staburn Property Group unveiled its proposal for redevelopment of 101-149 Lonsdale Ave. So when a friend thought to email me a photograph of the drawings, I was blown away by what I saw. Staburn and its heritage consultant Don Luxton have not only found a way to include the shape of the original building at 101, the entire frontage of the block marries the best of the original architectural lines with those of today.
Award winning? If city staff can be satisfied as to the development’s compatibility with complex building codes, I think Staburn has a winner.”
