This one forms a nice streetwall with the Trillium. Too bad the Trillium podium is so short. It should have been 4-6 floors. The upper floors of the Trillium are also looking pretty dated now. It's a transitional building between the red brick and precast of the 90's and the glass of the 2010's.

I wonder how likely it is that new podiums will be built around old tower-in-the-park buildings like Park Vic, Summer Gardens, or that diagonal one along Spring Garden Road. If those three had nice podiums it would make a huge difference to the area. Building those podiums wouldn't necessarily be a net loss for residents either; the ground floor amenities could go onto the rooftops. The city should probably be pushing for this.

The path west along Spring Garden Road and south along South Park is a natural route for commercial growth. Hopefully it's not stopped by the big tower setbacks.

I think that house is a great bit of character; would be nice for it to stick around amid the newer buildings. Ditto the beer garden. It does a lot more for neighbourhood character and streetlife than any building could.

Agree about the Eastlink building though--that's a waste of space at this point.

I agree, the beer garden adds a lot to the area more than a buliding would on this corner.

Oh, it totally does. The house is a bit awkward... its nice, but it could be moved as an infill somewhere in "Schmidtville"?

I love the beer garden... it would be cool if it was somehow able to be included in the design of a building. Imagine it had an open atrium over top and a building on the eastlink building / lot of the house.

Just the mechanical penthouse left on this one and then I assume they will move onto the Brenton building.
