Let me skip over the whole "does Langford suck" discussion and return to this building's description:

If an architect was responsible for crafting the sentence "The gorgeous Victorian/Arts & Crafts heritage style exterior," that person should have their license revoked until they can prove that they have actually studied the history of their art. The Arts & Crafts movement was a direct repudiation of the flouncy excesses of the Victorian era.

It looks like the fourth floor units have vaulted ceilings so I'll change the title to refer to this as a four-storey project.

Know it all.

Exactly. To describe this project as being of both styles is to entirely ignore architectural history.
