I was Justifying the units.
I Think we did have units that were a bit bigger at those corners, but there are numerous changes to them throughout the whole process of getting a building to its final state.
Getting units to gel together is a time consuming process.

In today's T-C, journalist Bill Cleverley's article [url=http://www.canada.com/victoriatimescolonist/news/story.html?id=e2a22528-e749-49e0-afa5-970c45057e13&k=77558:e4de5]Langford business costs too steep, developers say[/url:e4de5] reports that some developers want Langford city hall to "back off." A couple of excerpts from the article:
They're kvetching about a bunch of other things, too, but it's interesting that the affordable housing issue is on the front burner. Developer Les Bjola (isn't he associated with Bear Mountain, too?) claims that Langford's requirements have “created a huge problem.”
Langford requires developers to set aside 25 per cent of potential developments for greenspace — five times the provincial requirement.
It also requires developers to provide an affordable house (a home that will be sold for $160,000) for every 10 lots created. Developers subdividing fewer than 10 lots pay $2,000 per lot toward the city park fund.
But developers bought into the requirements on the understanding their commitment was to one or the other, not both, several told the planning and zoning committee.
The affordable-housing requirement can take “almost 55 percent of the developer’s cash upfront that he’s buying the land with,” developer Cliff Curtis said. “That becomes a huge issue. That’s why we’re looking at either one or the other.”
Umm, isn't this the Langford that we hear has bent over and greased up for developers?

Reflections looked... completely stalled. There's a hole in the ground, some of the wood-stuff I don't know the name of, and nothing else going on. It's been that way for a while now.
Still completely stalled, last time I drove by.
