    Sounds very interesting; Hallmark and Quadrangle seem to be a good pairing so far!

    While this is Phase II, it is going under the separate name of 80 Atlantic. Perhaps a separate thread is warranted?

    Love the glulam. Adds some welcome warmth to the interior spaces.

    Nice to see the west end of Liberty Village not following the same fate as the east end.

    Thankfully. The west end was pretty much vomited up.

    What bothers me most about Liberty Village is this area already had character and interesting, historic buildings. It started off with so much potential. If they would have consistently kept the industrial, brick aesthetic with a public realm of courtyards, animated alleys, great public squares and retail lining Liberty Avenue, instead of strip malls, parking lots and ugly townhouses/condos, Liberty Village could have been an amazing place. I hate to see a place that originally had such great potential, turned into just another uninspiring condo mess. It's frustrating because it so easily could have been something special and so much better than what we have now.

    Oh well, I guess you can't cry over spilled milk but when I walk through the neighbourhood, that becomes very hard to do.

    I get the same feeling. Twenty years ago it was run-down, sketchy sometimes - but infinitely cool, with a wealth of old industrial stock awaiting some urban rejuvenation and TLC. So much of it seems to have been arrogantly erased in a rush to build a host of forgettable buildings. We definitely lost an opportunity there. It could have been a real showcase of urban renewal.
