Affordable housing doesn't have to look bland or cheap, as proven by Toronto Community Housing Corporation's 60 Richmond Street East. Located just west of Church Street, the 11-storey, Teeple Architects-designed building was completed in 2010, adding 85 residential units to the area, including 9 units replacement housing units for former Regent Park residents. In today's Photo of the Day, which was submitted to the UrbanToronto Flickr Pool by Randy Hoffmann, we can see some of the building's colourful inset balconies on the upper floors.
