Nothing special... but certainly beats what is there currently.

Thinking back to how strongly NIMBY the neighbours were to the proposal for 5 stories at 500 James N, I'm looking forward to seeing their reactions to (gasp!) 8 stories here
^and between those two plus the 8 stories proposed for James at Burlington (not to mention much bigger longer-term work at the Jamesville and Pier 8 sites) this stretch of James is in for a very different feel!

I quite like it....8 stories is perfect for James N IMO. 6-8 stories all the way to Pier 8 would be ideal.
Other than the Jamesville housing site...it has space for some taller height.

whoever these people are complaining about 8 stories don't seem to have minded the 7 storey building in their hood for the last 65 years.

it's so overdue but time for all the NIMBYs to move to Tillsonburg and pat each other on the back.

I like the design - I think it looks sharp - I like the hybrid of brick and modern elements

What's interesting is the proposed ownership model including raw unfinished, modular units and creative financing partnership. This could be a first in Canada and a way forward for housing overall. See their website: http://www.jvnd.ca/

Some examples of this in Europe:

Some density near the GO station. That's great.

So would this project be classified as "affordable housing"?

That is a really cool proposal. Not only does it mean people strapped for cash can purchase a slightly smaller place, but others can purchase a 3 bedroom if they want. It hopefully leads to more family options than a normal condo developer would want to place in their building.

NIMBYs react to a tower proposal: we MUST oppose highrises and build 7-9 storey street walls like they do in Europe!!

8 storey proposal: this is WAY too tall! This isn't Europe for crying out loud! There are single family homes nearby.
