I wouldn't mind seeing a few high-quality buildings like Fairhaven Gardens around town. We've talked about it before, how there are only a handful of good faux-historic buildings (or additions to buildings) in all of Victoria. I'd trade the Salvation Army's building for something like that in a second.
It does remind me of Trevor Linden's new Government St. condo building. But when they start looking like carbon copies of authentic heritage I think it casts doubt about the true age of all buildings.
Note to people under age 30: a "carbon copy" is a duplicate. The term comes from "The Empire Strikes Back" where the carbonite Han Solo could be used to make replicas.
