Wohlsein – 311 East 6th Avenue



This project was a bit of a mystery when it appeared as a proposal in 2014. It’s had an address in Mount Pleasant, a bit of a description: “To develop new mixed use building with artist studios and residential units” and a date for the Development Permit Board in September.

There was a hitch with the unanimous non-support of the UDP members to the first version (on the right). The revised lighter version (below) was given a green light a few weeks later. The ‘as built’ is very close; the top floor is still light, but has a cream finish.
