Hey, I never have a problem with architecture that's conventional and straightforward, as long as it doesn't look cheap and as long as it's not a duplication of something that already exists. I've said it before on this board about Concert's buildings. They aren't exciting but they work just fine.

It's like a decent new house or a decent new car. They don't have to be exceptional to be good. They just have to be good.

That said, it would be nice to get at least one exceptional/interesting building on the Dockside Green property before all is said and done. But methinks it would also be nice to get Dockside Green finished, exceptional architecture or no.

I’m holding out hope for the bridge lot. The final phase of the Railyards ended up being quite ho-hum, despite earlier designs promising some pizazz.

If you're going to promise pizzas, you had better deliver.

Certainly, a bit more variety to the heights of the towers would have been nice.

While the towers’ cladding is a bit dark for my tastes (and the orange sections on Tyee looks like 70s countertops), I actually enjoy the tapered aesthetic of the heights of the buildings along there; I believe it was very intentionally done to go from the promontory and step all the way down to the low rise office buildings at Bay St. It looks especially striking when viewed from near the Parliament building.

Let’s not forget what will likely be a tall tower or towers at the bridge end, in front of the office buildings.

I'd still prefer to see a more up-and-down roofline than a subtle slope.

And the final tower towards the bridge needs to up its game esthetically due to the prominent location. It would be a shame to see this development end as ho-hum as The Railyards.

All towers in Vic could be 5 stories higher and the city wouldn't feel very different.

Why is the bed in the dining room?

Or they really enjoy breakfast in bed.

 

I do have to question the proximity of the bar stools to the bed however. Audience seating perhaps?

It’s a lot easier to eat on the bed than on that bar.

Speaking of which, that would be a great spot for a Murphy bed.

All of you fail reading comprehension. It says 'studio'. That IS the bedroom.

I was aware of that when I made my original comment.
