I wonder if this will get opposition from the residents? Glo got kiboshed and IMO it was as nice if not nicer.
This is pretty underwhelming. The scale is great for 5th and backing on Riley Park. If this were buried in a lower profile location in Hillhurst/Sunnyside it'd be fine, but 5th gets a decent amount of people traffic. Ezra's treatment of the alley/laneway is so much better than the surface parking here.
Like others have said it's purpose built rentals (which is great for the neighbourhood) who knows how high a standard can be expected.
