Dear WRConnected Users: Three whole years! We've grown so much over the past three years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. To this point it has been funded out of my own pocket. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover all of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

This is Schembri we're talking about here. Not really a company that seems to hold themselves to a high standard.

And sadly this might be a step up from some of their other work.

Driving by this construction site shows really how ridiculous it is having a complete block under construction minus one house.  
Looks like the developer is looking to squeeze more units out of this development.
Perfect, increased density for the ugliest new development.

I vote they reduce the density of this project.  Smile
I think increased density is OK for the area -- it's not excessive anyway at six floors -- but the city should use this opportunity to force a better design for the development.
Six seems to fit in well with what's around it, or going to be around it.

When you're walking along the street, this development looks surprisingly -not terrible-.
I agree. I think the scale fits well too.
An update on the increased density request.

Apparently the increased density request has been approved.

Steel beams are up for the next phase.

I like how the first phase is soft-convertible to have retail/service on the ground floor.
