I like that brickwork between the windows and the dash of yellow in the other window frames. Really, really nicely done.
Not so sure about that green and orange hot mess though.
I think the hot mess is fine - it's on a side street with no expectations, and besides it adds a splash of colour, which is always welcomed.
Why is it remarkable? It would be remarkable if they were NOT trying to meet the needs of the larger families.It's remarkable that the city is rebuilding all of the larger community housing units in both Regent Park and Alexandra Park. Like a 5 bedroom house/semi has to be worth at least $900k
