Something like: "Great project, but six inches too tall and half a block too far over."

 

I'd say the smaller buildings could use some refinement. They're really bland, almost undefined. I'm not suggesting that the main building looks like a work of art, but for what it is at least it seems to be "finished". You follow me?

 

As the developer, wouldn't it make sense to propose something bland just to get the process done faster? Look what happened at Ironworks; developer proposed something totally cool, got denied over BS reasons, and after council input had something that look like it was a copy and paste of Peatt Road in Langford.

That white platform in photo #2 is a carport?

I think it’s simply there to show the currently existing hair salon (which will stay)...

So because of all these arbitrary height limitation we get another block built out to its max with short flat topped buildings.

Yay!

I agree. It's got a nice mid-century modern vibe.

A view of the development’s immediate neighborhood. Interesting transition, but don’t expect mid rise buildings to move much further east than this downtown.

Too true! But the observation about and comparisons to Paris always amuse me since the local proponents of the European, specifically "Paris" look and feel, always conveniently omit mentioning the La Defense business district, which certainly ain't full of Cook Street-like, four floor grotty little squat box apartments.....

The shorter building needs a big shot of personality. Distinguish the top floor somehow. Something.

 

Note the phantom highrise on Vancouver street in the elevation image. Must be the one to come beside the Jukebox? If so, it seems much taller than the concept we saw a while back.

Does this mean the BC Housing component is no longer available, as per the earlier proposal that included an eight-storey BC Housing-backed affordable condominium?

Yikes. And how about all of those phantom buildings in the aerial views? Every car lot redeveloped.

 

Maybe I'm being too hard on the shorter building. Straightforward projects have their place in the mix. Also, the space running down the middle of everything actually seems like it could work.

The smaller building could use some tweaking.

Abstract's proposed 6-storey building on Quadra and Palmer would be the perfect replacement for that low-rise building.

The attainable condo building is no longer part of the proposal.
