Now that they have a library, maybe they'll actually want HSR service

This is a new, better library. I have fond memories of the old Binbrook library from my childhood :)

Interesting. I love how HPL is changing up the look of some of these new buildings in a big way -- this one, Waterdown's, probably a couple others. The ones built in the 1970s all seemed the same to me... nondescript, school-ish, somewhat similar to Canada Post's buildings of the era. The new Central Library was a stark contrast when it opened in about 1980.

I actually really like this. Would love to see a collection of these types of buildings along the waterfront as a retail village sort of vibe.
I just wish our council and hillbilly Binbrook councillor would allow some proper urbanization out there, not just sprawl and cars.

The bricks they used are gorgeous up close.
