Great to see more affordable housing but I don't like the location. Its not that great of a building thats being built in an already sterile side of downtown, should be built next to a LRT station somewhere else like Brentwood.

Ooof. I really hope the design has been unified.

I don't mind it. But as you can see from the picture, just about anything will be an improvement on the current view.

If I was dictator for a year, I'd put an iconic ACAD building there (think 41 Cooper Square) combined with a new LRT station.
You're not far off. At one time there was a rumour of ACAD looking at that lot and the lot beside Enmax as the city owned it and was keeping it for something institutional. The lot north of there along the river would also be great for ACAD. You could have some awesome terraces overlooking the river.

Nice to see this under construction. It's not the prettiest building, but it gets the job done, and it'll eat up another empty parking lot.
