Based on the website's sketch I would guess The Bronx or Brooklyn ca. 1905 ???

I thought maybe the property on the corner of Oak Bay Ave. and Richmond. There's a small office being built there now. But the website says where Fairfield meets downtown, which Richmond Ave. isn't really.

If those are residential units on the ground floor then methinks it would have to be more into the neighbourhood.

I think this might be going to the property at Oak Bay Ave and Richmond. I saw they were building what looked be a presentation suite on the lot there.This is the one that used to have a large house that Abstract moved.

Also of interest: NAI is selling two properties on Caledonia just east of Quadra. Last time I went by the signs were still up. Anybody heard anything?

No movement on these properties yet as far as I can see (l live adjacent to them on North Park). It's a prime location for something of greater density for sure. The existing houses located on these lots are well past their best before dates.

Do we have any idea of whether or not this is a rental or market condos?

Yeah, sounds like it, right? We'll chalk it up as condos then.

I would highly doubt it being rental. Highly.

They should make the ground floor condos have patios instead of the same decks as above.
