For fun I made this little round-up of SGR area projects:



Hopefully the Google Earth 3D imagery will be updated in a year or two. It's from 2017 and it's already fairly out of date.

Great visual!

Here's the number of residential units in each of the recently completed SGR developments, as well as those under construction.

There should be lots more activity on the street in the near future. Good time to go ahead with the streetscaping.

Completed 2004 to 2018
The Paramount 169
The Martello 110
The Trillium 84
Vertu 97
Mary Ann 135

Total 595

Under construction
Margaretta 147
Pavilion 85
Curve 198
South Park Lofts 62
Doyle Block 107
Grafton Park 67
Brenton Suites 170

Total 836 under construction

There have been a couple smaller ones too like the new BMO building and the one near Dresden Row and Brunswick.

The population density of this small neighbourhood will be similar to many busy neighbourhoods of large cities (I mean areas like inner-city Paris that are full of ~6 storey apartment buildings). It will only be an area with around 5,000 people, but that is still enough to support a lot of local amenities.

Gottingen will not be this densely built up but it is in the middle of a similar transformation. It didn't have enough population density to support many local pedestrian-oriented businesses, but that is changing.

One thing that I think is missing is a plan to integrate the main part of Spring Garden Road with the blocks farther west, and ultimately the Dal campus on Coburg Road. That may sound far-fetched but development sites in the core SGR area are almost gone. As the city grows, Robie Street will naturally morph into more of a commercial street too. There are 8 or 10 developments active along Robie.
