Yeah, looks much better than red brick too (i.e. H+H across the street)

I'm sure the developer would make a little more fortune since the City allows them to go taller after the land swap. This would help the developer project higher future sales figures, allowing it to splurge a little more on such "luxuries".

Moral of the story is that going taller comes with all sorts of benefits, like nicer alley walls.

It is still true that it seems only the subsidized buildings are getting better treatment than most conventional condo/apartment buildings, be they financed through developers or tax dollars.

Not really feeling that, but its a hundred times better looking then the design with the octagon exoskeleton. Doesnt look nearly as busy as the old design, in my opinion.

I like it.

It takes on the current diagrid trend....

Though it doesn't look as tall as it did before.

Here's the application:

No renders from the other side, but you can tell what it'll look like based on the elevations.

Hopefully it won't break down much.

A bit weird to have the rental and the market lobbies so side-by-side, esp. when the rental bank of elevator is so visible from the street.

That's a lot of balconies on the west side. Either lots of tiny units or then units with two balconies?

I don't like the schizo-look to the final product. Prefers the old design, or for the new design, they should at least have both sides look similar.

It's much broader than your typical Yaletown point tower that's for sure.

it looks pretty cool, much different from its neighbors. I can hardly wait to see the awful 1980's social housing get demolished. I remember reading somewhere that it's a leaky building too.
