This is such an attractive looking development.


On the whole I like it. There's not much you can do with this configuration to avoid staring into your neighbour's windows and the garages appear to be Smart Car sized, but it's a better use of land than what was once there.

Only if the neighbourhood associations would make it a bit easier to make crack shacks on Shelbourne into developments like this would be better for all.

 

I put this assembly together back in 2011 and two developers passed on it before Abstract bought it.

Problem is the neighbourhood association/city hall mess a lot of the designs up.  As a developer you have to compromise just to get things pushed through.

I think most neighbourhood associations do more harm than good.

This is a very attractive development. I wish I could afford to buy a unit here.

Looks great. Marko, do you know how many houses this 12-plex replaced? Many thoroughfares could really benefit from complexes like this, particularly where small condo buildings may not fit (or more likely, are opposed).

Recent heavy rains have caused flooding in six units. This part of Shelbourne has a known history of flooding but the units' sump pumps were unable to deal with the water.
