Came across this render of a renovated Elora mill today:
   

Lots more renders here:

Opening 2018.
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.

It's certainly ambitious!

That plan has been around for a few years now, has it not?

Wow. Very nice!

No surprise, same owner as the Cambridge and Ancaster Mills.

Is the webpage broken? None of the links seem to work - I wanted to look at their condo floorplans.

Links worked for me, although I didn't see anything for floorplans.

Very ambitious plan, but looks VERY nice the closer I look.

Oh, I see - it must be designed for tablets. What a horribly unintuitive webpage.

It's the current trend ... no more separate pages.

That said, while it looks nice (if it really does come to fruition), it's not ideal for a condo location from my point of view.  Elora itself is highly walkable, but it's also very small, so really you will be quite car-dependent for the most part.

ha!
Definitely designed for tablets. Not unusable on desktop, but it's not your classic point-and-click website. But wow does it not like a square viewing window.

I'm curious how the units in St. Jacobs above the Home Hardware have done. It's a similar example of a very walkable locale, but a small locale outside of which you're very car-dependent. Maybe they pitch for a community carshare? ;-)

Condo != Can't have a Car

No, but we do tend to associate condos with higher rates of non-car ownership, and associate urban core living with higher rates of non-car ownership, and the Mill fits both of these categories, that's all.

But I would like to think that

Condo == Don't need to have a car

Not to say that the Elora Mill won't be able to sell their condos -- but they are not for me, as pretty as Elora is.
