Ewwww.

Please return this design to Burlington/Ajax/etc. where it belongs.

How tone-deaf. Who decided the proper context for this project is the suburban-styled EIFS-clad big box Beer Store next door that's already slated for demolition/intensification/urbanization? Instead of acknowledging the tsunami of change coming to this street and its transformative power?

This proposal is sad and dissonant compared to all neighbouring proposals, similar to the existing low-income housing developments north of the tracks but without the decades-old provenance to justify its existence.

2/10
