Hmmm, but is iconic what we really need? I mean, is it *equitable* enough you know?

Personal note: "iconic architecture" means looking like a double-wide phone booth.

I admit I was really hoping for some Selkirk-style architecture when Hillside/Douglas eventually redeveloped. I imagined new construction and the old buildings coming together to make it feel like a neighbourhood, like you were in the middle of something rather than just passing through something.

 

I think I hope too much.

Wowzers.
