View Be Gone

When they bought their condos, I bet these folks thought they would have a lasting view of the downtown Toronto skyline.

Until another mega, honking, huge condo was built in front of them! Ha ha!

This new one, gaggingly enough, is called The Floridian, The Residences of Upper Yorkville. La de freakin' dah.

At least I don't have to worry. I only have a view of the Canadian Tire parking lot. Which, by the way is being turned into another MHHC.

They've been digging it out all winter, but they dragged away all the backhoes last week. And I saw a sign posted.

I thought, these suckers have finally gone belly up! Ha ha ha.

So I went to read the sign. They are applying to get a zoning wavier so they can make it even higher than legally allowed. 37 stories, with the top three stories "extra tall".

That's okay for a latte, but not for the condo next door.

Oh well, at least I won't have to watch frazzled parents dragging their kids out of Canadian Tire anymore.

Oh oh......Now I'll have to hear them screaming from their balconies.

..or on the way down?

Or will this become a suicide's destination? Onto the subway tracks from a great height?
