Looks fine - will fit well in that stretch of Oak Bay Ave that's all four-story residential. I hope Gardenworks is able to find a new, similar urban home. They've been my go-to place for years.

...this project is now called The Redfern....

That's better than calling it the Tanager. Glad to know bird-themed condo names aren't taking off.

You just peck away at it, eh? Always trying to create another big flap, as if it was just another feather in your cap. Is it any wonder so many people are chicken about new development?


I know criticism can be tough to swallow but don't be soar about it. It's never too late to tern the other cheek.
