^ The parkade is ugly and surprisingly big for a supposed TOD, but at least the apartment building itself is bringing some density.

It looks kind of like Osborne Place's big brother.

I guess they tried to hide the parkade by putting different facade materials to break it up, along with some aluminum mesh and a coloured "art feature wall", which is noted in the planning report, but still...

Horrible considering its a TOD, there should be three of those building on that site not a giant parkade.

The tower and CRU is good – parkade bad. Parkade should be integrated with a(nother) tower on top, like the one across the street at 240 Stradbrook, but still with that CRU.

Not a fan of the colour scheme. Just looks so commie-blockie to me. I know, I know...not really a commie block. Just looks like a throwback to me.

As well, if that's their plan for use of the property then they either don't have the money to build a second or third tower or they just don't want to make as much money on it.

I'd seriously rather they just duplicate 240 Stradbrook as is (newer finishings) and put a CRU on either side of the lobby. Problem solved – building is already designed, with an integrated and hidden parkade.

Based on the lot plan, looks like about 50 - 55% of the site is the parkade.

Ground Floor



Third Floor

That's ridiculous. Build it like the hated proposed parkade/office for Bannatyne, but taller and with CRU, lol. It should either be like this with the townhouses like originally, or you can't use half the land as a parkade – especially such a small one.
