Mod has a fancy new website, complete with some sexy new renders and a great skyline video. IF the materials and execution is up to snuff this is a Cook Street game changer.

It is a nice website, but I think they missed an opportunity for an old-school hook.: "There are condos and then there's Mod."

Yah.. before my time with that one NP.

How about “There’s condos and then there’s Mondos - introducing Mondo, formerly Pluto’s and still other worldly”. The storefront could include a Nando’s. Or a night club featuring a live harp player..

how about “what’s after Pluto? not Uranus, but mondo”.

what’s that joke about circling Uranus looking for Klingons?

You mod, bro?

Mod welcomes you in by providing an inviting human scale at street level.

 

Can I say it's about time a building in Victoria was human scale at street level? People are sick and tired of getting into cherry pickers to reach doorknobs the size of car tires.

Those are some gonzo ideas but I feel like you're trying too hard. Your plays on words need to be boffo if you want to get likes on this board.

The demolition of the former restaurant/old gas station is complete, I think.

Mike, that’s correct, the demolition has completed and the next step is excavation…

I just spoke with the developer and summer 2023 is the targeted completion date. The sign would be a typo, it looks like.

Weird, I took this pic about a week ago.. shows 2023. Maybe really skilled graffiti artists that like to mess with VV were at play. Lots of weird stuff happening lately.. those low flying jets T-Ford noticed, strange times my friends.
