No project name so far. Here is the only website mention that I have seen.A couple of pics taken by me today. Does anyone know if there is a name for this building other than the address?
Those are great shots! There is no name as of right now but I have it on good authority that the name will be selected by the end of next week.
You're completely right. The White soffit and glossy wood vinyl looks cheap AF. The Hardie looks ok, and the brick is good though.I’m going to spare you all from viewing a photo on this one but I’m sad to come back from Europe to see the progress on this one.
Black smartboard textured side out fascia on the balcony edges with basic white perf. aluminum soffit. The central vertical wall between some balconies is a glossy ‘wood’ look plastic siding. Once the red brick completes this is going to be a mess.
I think sometimes people forget about the economics of what's involved in building a condo project. Trying to make a project look nice, while keeping the costs down is difficult. There is color choice, etc... and maybe a few other little things where a better choice can be done for the same cost, but for the most part the materials chosen will totally affect the cost of a project.I don't know what all the fuss is about... increased investment on the exterior finishes would also be passed onto the individual buyer.
Given location, this is probably already pushing $500/sqft; compromises need to be made in this market, and I'm fine with a little extra faux finish - much better than not seeing this project happen at all. It's getting really hard to make the numbers work in the first place
