Interesting building. I always appreciate when a developer (PLOT. in this case) takes a risk and executes a non-traditional design concept. This won't appeal to everyone, but at least it provides some variety. Nice job MoDa.
They definitely should've done the front side the same way they did the back.Terrible street presence. Was hoping for better with this. The completely impermeable brick walls along the street just ruin it completely.
I would normally agree about the patio walls set up like this, however after walking by a few times it doesn't feel as oppressive/closed off as I thought by the pictures. The brick is a good colour/quality and is punctuated with the walk-up stairs. 7th Street here is a really dense and urban place with tons of pedestrian traffic (and a century of random infill designs) so have a more usable lower floor patio through the elevation makes sense to me. Overall the ground floor doesn't really stand-out as awkward compared to the rest of the block's treatments for the ground-floor interface.I'm not a fan of the front patio walls, but the rest is great. I'm especially looking forward to those Cedar shakes turning gray.
It costs just over $1000/linear meter to bury an electrical line so most developers don't do it on smaller projects. It would be nice if Enmax invested in putting the lines underground as communities start to (or in this case continue to) redevelop.Yeah not a fan of this. Tried to do something unique, ended up looking like a nicer version of a 70's building. What is with the awful wooden electrical pole out front?
