Hmmphh...undecided...I tend not to like asymetrical identical buildings of different heights and grade.

The ads this place has running on the backs of buses are creepy. They depict a man standing on a dock watching a giant vessel sailing away. Meanwhile the atmosphere is very dark and creepy. The tagline is "don't miss your boat to freedom" or something like that.

Is this still a three building project? Initially it was planned as two five storey buildings and a six storey building.

The unit count for this project is now 36, 36 and 30 units. Despite receiving backing from Saanich's planning department, the project is still (apparently) awaiting full approval. Can anyone confirm?

Personally, I am not a fan of the design of the The Shire. More so, I am not a fan of the architect's website < http://www.misraarch.com/ > what a joke. Cheap and fast on both accounts is all I see.

The empty and vandalized sales office trailer has been taken away. No sign of action. The view will be spectacular.

Agreed, that is a terrible website. It looks like it was designed AND last updated sometime around 1997.

I dunno, lots of professionals work out of their homes. He's done a lot of work by the looks of it.

For a one man team it does look like he has done a lot, albeit, all very uninspiring design-wise.

Should we change the name of this development to Mckenzie Walk 2?

This one has taken a lot of time to get going. If I'm not mistaken the same developers is behind the 468 Landmark project in Colwood which appears to either be in a holding pattern or has been cancelled outright.
