    Hmmm, okay thanks. It came up on realtor.ca today for some reason, that's why I was curious. I really like this project and hope it goes ahead.

    we really liked it as well (although our end plans were quite different). we couldn’t quite make it work in the time frame ChrisD and company managed to but still wish them luck with it.

    ^ Oh I didn't know you guys had your eyes on this property as well. Would you have incorporated the old structure as well? (not sure if that is mandated in the sale)

    incorporating the old structure was both the challenge and the allure and was a requirement.

    not always being successful is the nature of the beast i'm afraid - if you can put something together on one out of ten potential projects, that's a good ratio and about three times what some say you need to look at. we've made offers on the stovell block as well as a number of other potential projects that didn't come to fruition for one reason or another. some you say "that's life" and move on and others you regret for the rest of your career even though you still have no choice but to move on.

    some of my favourite projects to this day never got past the conceptual/proposal phase, some publicly (i.e. the national portrait gallery) and some that will remain forever undisclosed except to those of us that worked on them.

    It would have been interesting to see what you could have done with the Stovell Block.



    And an older one.

    This project is still a go. The sale closes the end of March. Lots of interest on this one and we are planning on breaking ground this spring.

    ^Pretty sure he's referring to Substation 600, as he was asked for an update in post 999.
