It has been changed quite a bit. Height is down and unit count is way up. Over 500 rental units.
It's no longer a concrete build. The amount of piles and caissons required to support the weight made it impractical. Now it's wood frame on a raft.
The complex is more outward-facing. There's more public space inside. A mix of studio, one, two, and three bedroom units. A significant affordable housing contribution.
The overall design doesn't strike me as being as interesting as the initial plan but it works for me.
The usual neighbour complaints about 272 residential parking spaces not being enough for 500-odd apartment units but I'm sure that's a good amount for a rental project at this location.
