Post-recession 130-unit mid-rise condo launches at Avenue and Davenport

A sign went up last week on the old Downtown Fine Cars dealership on Avenue just north of Davenport. Pears, named for the street residents will eventually be entering from, will be one of the first condo towers to be entirely conceived and launched – as opposed to re-launched – in the post-recession market.

At 20 storeys and 130 units, the mid-size, high-end building will begin selling this week. The building will be designed by Page Steele/IBI Group Architects, with interior design by Munge Leung Design Associates.

"We really have been working hard to come up with a building design that really adds to the streetscape and makes a design contribution to the area," says Mimi Ng, vice president of marketing for Menkes, which is developing the site.

The building will also incorporate a two-storey retail component along Avenue Road. "It’s going to help liven up that stretch, which recently has been a bit derelict," Ng says.

If sales go well, construction will begin next year.

Vintage Toronto Ads: Boosting Your Sox Appeal

Posted in the toronto(ist) by Jamie Bradburn on April 20, 2010 3:00 PM

Source: The Toronto Star, July 6, 1928.

Today’s ad proves that, while technology has relegated men’s garters to an aesthetic fashion decision from their one-time general usage, a bad pun is timeless.
Manufacturer Albert Stein & Company, in numerous ads during the early part of the twentieth century, boasted that “no metal can touch you” when you wore their garters. Comfort was always stressed to attract dubious fellows like today’s sad case; an ad from 1910 noted that “the fit is snug without shutting off blood circulation or furrowing the flesh.” Paris Garters were also touted as a great Christmas gift, as a 1939 ad for a boxed set illustrated:

He doubly appreciates receiving Paris from YOU. First he prefers Paris for its style, its quality and its utility. Second, and this is very important—he’s proud you’ve chosen THE BEST for him…Remember, Paris is priced no higher than imitations, but is always higher in quality than in price.

We suspect that our careless friend might not have had enough “sox appeal” to be on the receiving end of a gift that could have altered his destiny. He sat in his chair for several hours and pondered if it was simply sock issues that were his obstacle to dominance in the business world. Nobody seemed put off by his halitosis or the clucking noise he made when nervous or stressed. After taking stock of his situation, and determining that only eighty-seven different emotions seized him at any one time, he decided to launch a manufacturing firm dedicated to eliminating the scourge of sock droop from lazy dressers like him.

Tarzan and Jane




When Jane initially met Tarzan in the jungle, she was attracted to him
and, during her questions about his life, she asked him how he had s

"Tarzan not know s
Ex," he replied.

Jane explained to him what s
Ex was.

Tarzan said, "Oh ….Tarzan use knot hole in trunk of tree."

Horrified, Jane said, "Tarzan, you have it all wrong, but I will show you how to do it properly."

She took off her clothing, and lay down on the ground.

"Here," she said, pointing to her privates, "you must put it in here."

Tarzan removed his loin cloth, showing Jane his considerable manhood, stepped closer to her, and kicked her in the crotch!

Jane rolled around in agony for what seemed like an eternity.

Eventually, she managed to gasp for air, and screamed, "What did you do that for?!"

Tarzan replied,

"Check for squirrel."
