    From a quick glance at Google Earth the houses don't seem to be particularly old (50s-era?)- but I doubt the neighbours will be loving this.

    The pseudo-abstract-watercolour approach to renderings has always perplexed me somewhat.

    Also I think the local pitchfork shops will soon be sold out to the local NIMBYs; this one could be a barn burner.

    Those are actual watercolours, and in Toronto they are (nearly) invariably created by local Michael McCann. He's won a bunch of awards, and for those who want their project to appeal to people's sense of nostalgia, McCann is in demand around the world. No, the average project does not go for this style…

    I had no idea it was all one guy doing the watercolour renderings. That's so interesting. I'm guessing he also did the Waterworks Building one too?

    P.S. Brother Peter McCann, referred to above, is famous for his architectural models, also in demand around the world. You'll even find a McCann Bros. link on Peter's website.

    And there are lawn signs up in the neighbourhood now, too. Ugh.

    This is the most frustrating bit from the petition: "Rosedale is designated as a heritage conservation district under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act. As such, merging of single family lots to build condominiums must not be allowed."
