Used to be an avid reader of Frank Magazine - Michael and Marlen were a constant target. I wonder where Frank is today...

That home looks fairly good actually....different tastes I guess. The roof does look cheap though.

Thankfully, this hasn't actually been built yet, but still.

I don't mind this house at all. Except for the back.

Is the lack of windows a new trend or something? Remember that cube house in Vancouver originally listed for $14 mil? Where they were going for a utilities building look?

What's the deal with that?

Looks like the modern version of these behemoths in Oakville that I posted in the past.

I live 5 minutes away from those beasts in Oakville. Not much to look at but at least they're in a nice neighbourhood!

Posted this Ottawa gem a while back in the previous ugly thread.


Prior to reclad, it was a slum but had nice wraparound balconies.

They should have saved their money. That re-clad is awful.

One of my friends in Ottawa nicknamed that building "Mogadishu Manor".

Is it still residential? That reclad would make sense for an office conversion, but removing those huge balconies (often the major saving grace of ugly 1980s apartments) would make no sense for continued use as residential.

I believe it's almost 100% residential. There might be a dépanneur and pizza or shawarma joint on the ground floor but that's it.
