Tonight while driving down King St, it looked like this building was being demolished. I wonder if this will turn into another student housing development or if the building was needed to be torn down due to poor condition, I have no idea or hopefully for some new interesting development.
Re: that old garage being pulled on King--I always like the building and pictured a funky bar/art gallery space going there, sort of like Rolly's Garage on Ossington (which recently closed, sadly.)

Should there not be a fence along King at this property? It seems like someone (in particular a drunk student walking home from an Uptown bar) could injury themselves walking past here.

There was one and somebody knocked it down. Not sure where it went though
That ravine is deadly!
You're correct, that (steep hill more than) ravine is an artifact of widening Westmount and building a parking lot below. I often wonder about the development opportunities at that location...it seems like a difficult area for intensification.
It's a great place for some "green" intensification: fill the slope back in and plant some trees.
Good to see 136 King and University Commons moving forward after being stagnant for a while. Is there an update rendering of 136 King or details on what the development is exactly.
Details on 136 King St, I think I am missing what this development is.
