With another couple of comparatively small changes (fix up the wood apartment building, some maintenance for Black-Binney House and its grounds) it could be great. With a few more infill buildings like Salter and something for the nearby parking lots, this turn into a great neighbourhood. Most Canadian cities don't really have this style of development, with the narrow streets, hills, and a mix of very old buildings with tons of character and modern infill.
