Are you serious about those crack dens??Feel free to post the application, but I assume you mean the application to change the face after the original approval.
You said it yourself. They had a hard time selling for a while, despite the low prices.
It may be a combination of factors: For one for example, a family we know that bought there, later decided to sell because they found out the school district is quite bad. How bad? Not only does the local elementary school get bad Fraser Institute ratings, it had instances of naked drug addicts knocking on its windows from the nearby crack dens. The high school there also gets bad ratings.
It’s great the area is changing, partially because of that project, but it’s always hard to be the first project to initiate a wider gentrification process.
Then again, the local shops are finally starting to get better. For example, a Starbucks finally moved into the neighbourhood last year.
Well, perhaps more like really grungy apartments in the area, some of which are rented to crackheads. Take a walk on the north side of the street, in the alleyway behind the shops, and look at some of the apartments there. Pretty awful looking. Really sketchy. Or at least they were previously. I haven't looked this year.Are you serious about those crack dens??
I didn't realize this is just down the street from Haven on the Bluffs, on the same street. You mentioned Glen Everest, but the front is actually 2201 Kingston Road.Looks like we will have neighbours joining us in a 2-3 years at the north-west corner of Cliffside and Glenn Everest.
Site Plan Application just submitted, and it does appear lifstyle custom homes submitted it. Who knows if they will actually build it. Maybe they will flip it with all the approvals and design in place.
I wasn't expecting that colour at the bottom. Looks fine now, but it seems it might get dirty looking really quickly.
Looking forward to it!I attended the meeting at St. Andrew's Church for this new development back in March. The architects were there also - RAW Design. The meeting was well attended and it looks like a very good project. They said they expected to launch sale this fall.
