Here’s a snapshot of a row of town homes send to CCAN on May 14th by a neighbor who opposes the apartment block style of the current project on East 18th Avenue. Something ground oriented like this would add much needed family rental housing to the neighbourhood.
The next five photos below are of an attractive townhouse project on East 17th Avenue near Quebec.
We’ve seen what The Developer wants to build here, we don’t like it. The City Planning Dept has said they don’t like it either, but they haven’t yet told us what they envision instead. We haven’t told them what we would prefer either. What do you think?
I like attractive row houses like these ones from 20th and Knight. I like these other townhouses a couple of blocks away. Both styles add density while still reflecting the character and style of the neighbourhood.
So, this is your invitation to submit a photo of a housing form that appeals to you. What would you like to see here? We can start having a discussion of these ideas at the next meeting May 7th 2016.
