“I don’t want to do urban sprawl anymore,” he said. “In a downtown core, you can’t be prosperous, you can’t have vitality with single family homes in the downtown core.”
Four buildings ranging from 13 to 22 stories are proposed for Arncote Avenue between Peatt and Sunderland roads, totalling 456 residential units, and two six-storey multi-family buildings built at 1365 Goldstream Ave. would hold 102 residential units.
I have seen this type of density in other larger urban centers and it doesn't end well. A 1,000 units and vehicles in that area will become 24x7 gridlock.
I don't think so. Couple busier times each day. 1,000 condo units hardly noticeable though. 1,000 homes at Westhills probably adds 3 or 4x the traffic. Two parents each working, one teenage kid with car, plus the basement suite tenants.
The model seems to be to build the buildings and then flip them to an Ontario or Quebec based aggregator.
What's wrong with that? Local team on the ground with local experience and connections gets it built, the REIT etc. buys and runs it. Does it matter who your landlord is in a 100-unit brand new building? Some of these big companies have slick systems and service arrangements that put the moms and pops to shame.
Ontario REIT landlord:
The Scene by Evantra Developments will have 270 condominium units in two towers — 18 and 24 storeys high — to be built over the next two years.
The concrete towers, at Peatt and Scafe roads, will be built near downtown where wartime houses once stood. The development clears the way for Langford to become a “modern city,” said Mayor Stew Young.
Langford cut a ribbon Friday on what will be its highest buildings and a project that will change the skyline on the West Shore.
