60 Richmond St East is the latest addition to the City Of Toronto social housing stock. And what a beauty it is. Designed by Teeple Architects, it is drawing some might fine comments here at Urban Toronto. For example, UT member Irish Monk is quoted as saying "An absolute masterpiece. Imagine if Cityplace had been designed in this fashion." Indeed. Which leads to a question. Why can the city offer interesting architecture when most private developers can't? Here's some photos courtesy of member drum 118. What do you think?
