Yup - there's far better looking stuff among the Regent Park redevelopments. Perfect example of the saps buying here having more money than brains.

I don’t think it’s fair to blame buyers for this, at all.

But this serves as an example of why local architects - in addition to reasons of practicality and useable floor space - reject curves in their residential buildings. What is originally drawn as a smooth, svelte line in plan will almost inevitably be value engineered into a faceted series of abrupt lines forming a “curve”.

Office projects permit a budget for nice curves (see HPA projects) but a res. project is far less forgiving.

At least it's not the cookie cutter square buildings we see daily. I am on the fence for material and need to see more to say more.
