An old house at 1012 Richardson has been seeing some significant changes this summer. Interesting to note: the owner, a local architect, has no heritage alteration permit or even a building permit yet. Apparently the city finally has noticed and issued a stop work order. Despite that, construction continues.

No concrete plans for the property yet following demolition. The need to raze the building stems from issues with break-ins, vandalism, and pests, and the impact the vacant building is having on nearby properties as a result of the latter.

Went by yesterday and noticed a trellis or pergola or something was built on the site. Looked like something you would find in a community garden, but there weren’t any plants.

It appears that a small townhouse project is going to be proposed for 515 Foul Bay Road in the Gonzales neighbourhood...


More details have emerged on this proposal.  18 new units will be created - 9 3-bedroom townhouses with 9 1-bedroom units on the first floor of these townhouses.  The 5 rental homes in the existing manor would be retained, for a total of 23 units on the property.  GMC Properties (Jordan Milne) is the developer.


A detailed presentation is on YouTube:  https://www.youtube...._Cy9V1Ak&t=894s


A rendering of part of the development (note that the new townhouses and 1-bed units are broken up into 3 separate buildings):

Interesting. The designs were seeing for these projects are increasingly in that style. It’s very euro-chic.

Know it all.

There's a proposal for a new 39-unit supportive housing development at 1048 North Park.  This development is a private development by Wild Coast Construction Ltd, in conjunction with VIHA, and it intended to be a new home for residents of an existing building that has reached end-of-life,  


Here's a rendering:

Ground floor is hideous.
