Or to flip that around it's sad that luxury condos envelopes are built to low standards (and then fitted with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances). Social housing seems to set the bar in this case.
A luxury condo should carry some prestige and be built with quality materials and be allowed to shine from the outside as well as inside. What seems to have happened in Vancouver is a bunch of quick buildings by a few developers with high-end appliances.
