Having lost at LPAT and seen his building go up in flames, Brad Lamb obviously washed his hands of any proposal for this site. Now there is hope for this historic site. Here is a message from Ken Greenberg of the WPNA (Wellington Place Neighbourhood Association):
Martin, Dieter, Eti and I met with Allied yesterday and learned that they are keeping and restoring 424 with a sensitively scaled addition to the rear by ERA as a restaurant, keeping LeSelect as a bistro and developing a landscape courtyard plan that will integrate all of their properties in the inner block. Attached is the deck they shared with us. We raised a number of issues including controlling the noise from the “patios” and the need to advance integrating within the larger public realm for the block which they were receptive to but overall this is an excellent outcome.
Ken also shared the (presumably very draft) concept of the new proposal in this DOCUMENT.
