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.

New plans for this development were uploaded to Dev Tracker yesterday (Feb 8).

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

Yay!

I am really loving the ground floor on the corner building. Looks great!

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.....
