So CBC did an editorial on the Carnegie Building in Vancouver, and I couldn't help but think of this project when I saw an image of the Dawson Block across the street. Very similar in massing and articulation, but not monotonous! Variation in first floor height between the two buildings! Different window and awnings treatments! Varied height!
So what does VV's braintrust think about the townhouse treatment for some of the ground floor along the east end of it? Yay or nay? Methinks something like the units on 834 Johnson could work really well there. Along with 648 Herald and 681 Herald (former Taj Mahal) I'd say there's potential for a really cozy urban residential effect.
The decision to make ground floor retail or residential is a big deal, usually the City weighs in as they have the overall vision of what streets they want having foot traffic. Streets like this on the edge of town can go either way so having a mix of retail and residential meeting the sidewalk is not a bad idea.
When we want to waffle don't we just call them live-work units?
Hello? Is anyone here? I have a 7 am appointment for a dental cleaning.
Yes, I'll be right down, just getting out of the shower.
