To build on this. It's why so many people prefer old secluded Victorian era houses or the likes as their dream home, over a townhouse or duplex.
The interior could be nicer with better amenities in the townhouse but they'd still prefer a Victorian house tucked away where no one else can see. Exterior aesthetics are a huge factor in buildings and unfortunately even the assumptions we make about who lives there.
That said I dont worry much about how these buildings will look. They'll be fine......
Uhhh, hold on..........this is Cadillac Fairview we're talking about.
The same firm that has made a hash of the Eaton Centre over the years, the nice pedestrian bridge over to HBC excepted.
Also the same firm that turfed Great Gulf's renowned Landscape/Planning firm from this proposal in favour of less renowned contributors..........
From the people who brought you Shoppes on Don Mills; and desecrated the only redeeming features of Sherway Gardens.......
I think I will have some concern over their willingness and ability to execute good architecture......
But that's the pessimist in me talking..........this could be their turnaround moment!
, it's just the tabletop that's the issue at the moment and it was just mentioned how the city has already pointed that out.
That's the immediate concern, no question. But there's little else to critique the details of just yet, excepting the basic layout of the community, which is also a point of concern as expressed by the City.
