This one is a bit better.
seriously, what is with the parking completely surrounding the tower? move one end of the building to the street, and put the parking behind it! its not that hard! plus you already seem to have retail at the base, so you don't have to go through more paperwork than you already are to make this a building that will fit in with an urban enviroment.
Arrrgh! Why do I open Markham threads?
yeah, why even bother with that podium suited for an urban setting if it's going to be plunked down in a field of pavement? At least it contributes generously to Markham's heat island ...
This is being marketed as The Mark.
Is this the one being developed with Empire?
This is tragic. What sort of dinosaur would design something that meets the street like this?
This is probably the worst placement of parking possible... I think even putting all the parking at the front would be better since at least that way it's big enough to be able to build a new building on it further down the line. Even if they want parking visible from Markham road, they could at the very very least put the building say at the North side of the site and the parking to the South.
This broke ground on Thursday, so now we have UV2, The Mark and ArtHouse under construction all in a row along the west side of Markham Road.
