I can see a community room being utilized, but this is a patio space. My understanding is that there is no glazing in this area, and that it is open to the elements.

 

Of course, if there was a dumb waiter to the cafe below, then residents could order up coffee and snacks. "Two lattes coming up".

Put windows on it and it would be a great yoga/fitness room.

Better install some A/C at the same time otherwise that southwest facing space will be for hot yoga only.

Phase one almost to full height. Now if they'd just start on the back half of the project...

It certainly is a mishmash of angles and weirdness.

Stole my thunder Marko, was going to upload some pictures after getting home...

Wonder what noise levels will be like for those living in units facing the intersection, gets quite busy there and there aren't slabs of concrete to dampen it.

Much better than simply the usual box.

 

I applaud their efforts to make it visually interesting, using different angles, textures, colours, and balcony types.

 

Different, but not weird.

I say give a cheer for something different!  I think it will really come together when the Black & White brick is laid.  Visual interest is lacking with so many builds.  Abstract could have built it much cheaper if it were just the normal box.

The white brick is being applied to the south (Meares-facing) facade.

Here’s a close up of the bricking and an overall look at the Meares-facing side.

Thanks for the images.  Certainly will be interesting when more of the Black & White banding gets laid.
