Does it Fit With the ‘Hood or Not?

Despite the fact that this building probably has a sweet roof deck, I can’t quite get over how much it clashes with the classic rowhouse right next door. What do you think -does it fit or no?

  • no fit…should have built to match the rest of the row…

    What bugs me most is that it looks so hermetically sealed, like an office building. When it’s 70 degrees outside, I want to be able to open a window or two.

  • It’s not the worst. I kind of think it works. At least the building on the right is tall as well.

  • I really like it. And correct me if I’m wrong, it’s on a cool stretch of street in Shaw (Q maybe?)

    Ugh…more boxes…I hate, hate, hate this style of design and it seems to be everywhere now. This is ugly now and will be hideous in 25 years.

    Much better that trying to make a bad copy of the old houses. Height looks a bit weird firt, but it does sort of match with/step up nicely to the tall building on the right. Windows could have been more interesting to add a bit of “rhythm” and “flow” to the design.

    Who cares if it matches or not? This city has enough “Victorian” townhomes anyways.
