Monday (Tuesday) Wake Up - StreetCar Development Edition
Our good friends at Streetcar Developments made a BIG splash this week with the purchase of Jilly's.
They also wanted to make an even BIGGER splash by making a VERY special offer to Alexjwilson.com clients. The deal is so good I cannot even advertise it.
We are working with Streetcar on an INCREDIBLE DEAL for their Queen West site The Carnaby (Alexjwilson.com is also an investor in this project). Here is our video on the project:

In honour of StreetCar we are dedicating this Monday (Tuesday) Wake Up to Streetcar Developments.
Streetcar Developments BUYS Iconic Jilly's Building
AJW's Pet Peeves - Strip Clubs, Alex J Wilson
The building that sits at Queen and Broadview in the East end has often spurred the conversation - imagine what this building COULD BE. While Streetcar developments is making this dream a reality as it has purchased this building which houses the infamous Jill's strip club. From my video above you can see why this is quite the accomplishment.
Here are some interesting reads of the week: (Click on title Link)
