Has the demo of kensington manor started up yet?
It is really close to being completely stripped to just concrete structure. The solid north and south walls have been removed. It’s an interesting shot from over by Vendome where you can see it with Annex in the opposite end of its life cycle.

On Fifth Street SW in Mission. I saw them doing some sort of prep work in the vicinity the other day. Not sure if it was related to this though.

Next to The Hub. New surprise tower?

I was hoping for a tower to block out the blight of the Hub, but also infrastructure is good too.

We will eventually get towers next to the HUB, the question is when? I know last year there were renderings shared of two towers proposed right next to it, they just seemed to have got lost like most proposals in the forums.

Ronmor owns the site, and they had massing diagrams on their website for the proposed development there. Zoning is approved, but no development permits. However, when I check their website now, nothing appears for it, so perhaps it has been shelved for the time being.
