This is interesting. Its really just your run of the mill condo tower, but instead of 1 main entrance for everybody theyve added a bunch of townhome style steps leading to separate entrances for ground level units.BCDC presentation for Phase 2:
This particular building isnt particularly incredible, but I think theyre on to something here. Better materials overall and this could be a huge win. As far as livening up the street wall if youre on a street that wont support lots of ground floor retail this is a nice way to liven up ground level. I like it.
This could be a way to incorporate more townhouse style front steps to streetscapes all around the city on buildings that are already going up everywhere. Townhouses arent really going up much anymore, but this could be a way to gain more stoop lined streets added to the cityscape that everybody loves.
