I like the idea and form of these townhouses a lot. I am not terribly keen on some of the cladding materials though. The narrow-width horizontal siding looks kind of cheap and undifferentiated. Some shingles or such at the roof peaks might have helped.
100% agree. It's kind of an odd mix of Montreal triplex and St. John's "jellybean row." Or perhaps a series of darts thrown at this webpage: https://streeteasy.com/blog/nyc-townhouses-5-most-common-types/
A more unified cladding material (but not colour) would have gone a long way. The brick unit between clapboard units is a head-scratcher.
I quite like it, and think it'll look a lot better once landscaped. I think more rowhouses and townhouses all up and down Wilson, Catherine, and Alston Streets would make for a more interesting and dynamic neighbourhood, and it would be a good transition from the more suburban areas of Vic West to the more dense Dockside/Railyards/Bayview areas. I went for a lengthy walk around Vic West the other day and it really is an underrated neighbourhood. Even the more single family home-centric areas have an interesting mix of retail, corner stores, light industry, townhouses, and small apartments.
