More Downtown Infill, another sign that downtown London is going through a transition

January 9, 2009 at 10:07 pm 1 comment

I took these pics a few months ago, this building on Colborne St. just north of Dundas is now complete and selling some very nice condos units… I’m still deciding if I like this building or not… its design per its location is a little odd as both the buildings to the north and south are only 2 storey’s, and the projecting balconies are something to get used to. But I do know that I like the idea behind this project; INFILL and the idea of having more people living, working, shopping, enjoying Downtown London. As much as I believe this building is ugly, it does implement some good urban design principalssuch as bringing the building up to the lot line to create a consistent street wall, it has hidden parking within the building, and it tries to include some interesting architectural features.

    It’s nice to see that the building is finally finished! I used to live at 369 Queens (behind this building) and it’s been in the building stages for 3 years now.
