The redevelopment of this nationally significant heritage site, which was formerly Montgomery’s Tavern (and the site of the Upper Canada rebellion), has met with general praise from heritage groups and the local community. The development retains the existing public areas of the post office, and importantly, retains its forecourt as a key public space. Rising 27 storeys and cantilevering out above the post office, the new condo frames the heritage component of the site, and by terracing to the west, transitions to the existing neighbourhood. The building will feature panels of limestone and brick, melding the institutional and residential textures of the area. A large glazed atrium, featuring a sculptural stair volume will link the new a nd retained buildings on site.
