    UT member Ben Myers just informed me that 51 Camden is another Alterra/Zinc production. Wallman or Quadrangle perhaps, Projectend? (Would love to see another Team Richard Witt creation--can they create something to surpass Abacus Lofts here?!)

    Anyone know how far down Camden this project will go? Is it just the building on the corner of Camden and Brant?

    It may be the entire block--sounds like it'll also be more than just condos here--perhaps a boutique hotel?!

    I just woke up from a dream where the design of this site featured prominently. Neo-deco bronze-metal hotel on the corner with curved corner and 2 reddish-brown brick residential masses to the east--looked very DuKe meets RC3.

    whaaaaaaat?! This is going to be good. Real good. Every project Shim-Sutcliffe has delivered has been fantastic, I'm excited to see how they handle multi-family residential.

    It's a 13-storey hotel Fibonacci - nonetheless pretty exciting

    Some of you will probably say I'm barking mad, but looking at the architect's portfolio I'd love to see a design that incorporates wood somehow. You really don't see too many tall modern buildings making use of it, which is a shame because it's such a timeless, impactful material.

    Wish I still had time to attend these meetings. From the sound of it, this is poised to be a gem.

    It's unbelievable how little excitement there is about this project on here.

    I can't remember the last time I had so much excitement over a blurry little Twitter pic. So intrigued to see what Shim-Sutcliffe do here; and it already has a handsome neighbour in the Brant Park midrise next door.
