I guess I'm saying there's an oddness to it, but I'm liking the oddness when I regard it in those terms.

I want to like this compromise, but I just can't (yet) get over what might (and should) have been for this site.

Jon, I’m saving this for you when you have a spot for it.

The only thing that I'm wondering about is the modern glazing on the units in the brick-clad sections. Did you consider "heritage-style" glazing for those units?

The context images show us how small this building will be in sheer terms. Also, I sure hope the city has a reasonable plan for all of that green space down there. It could be a great little city park (emphasis on the "city" aspect) if they do it right.

LOL! Like the CoV has shown it has any real vision for the area around the JSB. The last thing this area needs is more empty, univiting "people spaces". Reeson Park and the plazas around the new bridge are all the evidence I need that nothing good will come about here if left to the City.

We lost our only real hope for the best use of this space when the CoV backed away from selling the land to the developer. All we'll get now is a compromised development and a useless strip of land straddling the roadways between Wharf and the NJ buildings.

I wonder if someone can help me with this. The article linked above was penned on Thursday May 16 and it refers to an open house on Wednesday but does not depict which Wednesday. Would it be the Wednesday following the article ie Wednesday May 22? 

 

Did I miss the open house?

^ Thank you, I thought that might be the case. 

 

I can't see why Jon posted on May 26 a link to a May 22 open house ?

Are we keeping the new proposal in this thread?

 

There is a brand new rezoning application with the drawings on the Dev Tracker: https://tender.victo...Number=REZ00701

If a new thread is started can it be named "The Missed Opportunity" or perhaps "The Unfortunate Compromise"?
