Here’s a Chinatown proposal discussed at the 27 July Urban Design panel. The project is a 9-storey, 26 unit residential building with retail and parking at grade. The city lot it’s proposed for is only 25 feet wide. The building sits next to a lane, looking onto the back of a parkade.
The design, by Birmingham and Wood with ASIR Architects suggests a grey and yellow pallette (a refreshing change from the ubiquitous Chinatown red) and a contemporary take on the Chinatown balcony/screen idea. The Urban Design Panel unanimously supported it.
