Pine and Belmont Development Proceeding?

A reader wonders what is up at Pine + Belmont:

I live at the Press (Pine and Belmont) and on my way home this afternoon I noticed fliers posted on all the cars parked across the street in the gravel lot where Kinkora used to be. The flyers served as cease and desist requests, indicating that the lot is no longer being used as a parking lot. The pay station is gone too.

Any idea what’s happening? Are they finally developing the place? Might be an interesting post if you hear anything (at least interesting to me)

I tried to be reporterly and contact Murray Franklyn but it looks like my contact there is gone. In other me-trying-to-be-a-reporter-news, I must say that sometimes its overrated and reporting rumors without fact checking would be better for us all.

About Matt Goyer

I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!

For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at matt@urbnlivn.com, I'd be happy to help you.

Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.

You can also find me on Twitter, @MattGoyer, or LinkedIn.

    Parking (as in a single-purpose parking lot) is not a permitted use for that site, according to the Neighborhood Commercial Zone code. So my guess is that the City clamped down and told the developer they were not playing by the rules.
