It's unfortunate that the "panorama" view will be of a car junkyard and giant piles of gravel and soil across the Bay Street Bridge. Any chance the shores of Point Ellice will ever get redeveloped or is water access essential to these businesses? It's such an eyesore from Vic West, the JSB, and Selkirk Village.

Water access is vital for those businesses.

Will Panorama be the "final final" undertaking in the area? There's a couple of light industrial lots sandwiched between the condos and the SFH neighborhoods west of Tyee/north of Bay. Looks weird but they aren't the biggest lots either to be a priority for development.

It’s the final phase for the Railyards as we know it, yes. If they choose to incorporate other lots that would be in addition to the existing masterplan.

The future site of the Panorama appears to be temporarily being used as a staging ground for the Bay St Bridge remediation work.

Does this mean there will be no progress on Panorama until at least October?

I believe this relates to the Panorama project.

Please note that the opportunity for public comment for the Development Permit with Variances Application No. 00080 for 701 Tyee Road that was scheduled for tonight’s Council meeting, has been cancelled at the request of the applicant.

The final phase of the Railyards project has been substantially revised and now includes some 'micro units', making 95 units in total.

I am not sure what to think of this. Also, why the introduction of the dark earth tones this late in the game?

I'm not sure why they are varying up the colour palette, but it does appear that the project will now be wood-framed like the previous buildings...

Cool rooftop which they haven't done on any of the other buildings!

The Tyee-facing building has 6 storeys and the other building has 4 storeys. 

 

Unit counts:

Tyee-Facing building:  53 units, including 5 1-bedroom units @ 445 square feet and 48 micro units (340-345 square feet)

'East" building:  42 units, including 6 1-bedroom units and 36 micro units

This will be the third redesign for this final phase, no?

Interestingly, looks like this redesign is from December 2019, with the April plans having only minor tweaks

I'd like to know why the redesign.  I can't say the dark colour matches the style of the building.  Dark colours on blocky buildings make them look a little like a bunker if there aren't the right design elements.  This looks very 1970s.
