Absolutely INH, just a bit of a jab. This development is by far my favourite of their projects. Incorporating some of the old dairy factory skeleton and the common area courtyard are quite rad elements.

Also big fan of how they use passive housing.

I love these guys. Especially how they just get it done.

Doesn't look like they are adhering to the original design though.. seeing lots of changes.. I hate when people do that - just release a proper render so people can see what it will actually look like.. they did that with acclamation too..

...yaaa no.



vs





vs



different entrance arched now as opposed to rectangular - different areas at the bottom where the parking garage is, different window locations etc.

Not sure how you think that is "exactly" the same but there are even structural differences to the last image...

I feel like this has been said before, but never trust renderings - always consult the site plan drawing elevations if available.

This is an affordable housing project with tight budgets, so I don't know why they'd hire a rendering firm to produce marketing level renders for a project like this.

Perhaps they found some savings by making a few changes. Which I would not begrudge, given how much affordable housing Indwell has been developing.

to be fair the changes neither detract nor enhance it since affordable housing is kinda meh legoland/ikea builds anyways..

I hope they still have the patterned brick at least though - I just hate how it communicates "if you're poorer than everyone else you can't have a nice looking building" but whatever - some people might like this type of design..

Also I always laugh when they have all these fancy overhangs and tiered levels - the most common construction is a rectangle with load forces going straight down - as soon as you add jutouts and tiers then this overcomplicate the steel design and more point loads have to be added and so they just usually end up eliminating them after the calculations are done - which is why I'm not surprised at all the last picture had the roof jutout removed and that little tiered spot removed either as then it makes it harmoniously boxy for such a cheap design.

You're going by the older design. Here's the newer which matches what is being built --

Ah you would be correct - my bad I somehow missed those renders..

at least they made an updated render - I hate builds which don't let you see the changes..

From Indwell's virtual video event. Looks like this was taken a couple months back, but a great perspective on the City skyline:

We don't often see it from that direction. Thanks! (I copied your post to the Canada skyline thread)

That gap between Landmark and the King-James-Main cluster will look a whole lot different in a few years.
