At least the design is 20% better than their old developments, oh well.

I suspect that the City might have more room for enforcing a better design than they're using here, because (I'm guessing) they know that Schembri would take them to the OMB instead of complying.

Not a fan of the concept. The rendered buildings remind me of Ikea kitchen cabinets on a macro scale.

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
