I also like these new buildings in Detroit...

A few examples in Halifax:











Some of the buildings above are fine but in general I prefer modern looking buildings. Faux Victorians never quite look right because of the different building materials and some design requirements of newer buildings (people want garages and don't like 50 square foot bedrooms, for example).

Most of this is looking really really good. And mostly in styles that are pretty far from the stuff getting built here (not that the good ones here aren't good, just different).

A few pics of two infills on the fringes of the Inner City in Sthlm:

just finnishing up, used to be parking lot for a hospital iirc





~10 years old, across the street from the other one

Good infill should have u/g parking.
