Development history: 

"The proposal has been developed in response to the specific requirements of six identified purchasers, each seeking a unique sense of individual house within an urban context; in effect, they collectively wish to set a precedent for successful and highly livable inner city housing. 

Six townhomes have therefore been developed, each having an unfinished basement and three floors plus mezzanine, accommodating, in ascending order, a private garage and entry, sleeping accommodations, main living areas, and a multi-purpose mezzanine and outdoor roof terrace. 

The ground floor is designed to maximize the value or the space, providing a secure transition from vehicle to apartment, yet still providing a front door for visitors to the individual residents. The private garages are large enough to accommodate bicycles and one vehicle and , in three units, arc penetrated by light from North facing windows along the property line. 

Main living areas are located on the third level to achieve maximum North facing views and sunlight penetration above the rail yards immediately adjacent. Each unit is also provided with an outdoor balcony overlooking the street at this level.

Elevations have been developed to maximize variety, creating individuality while enriching the street. Each unit is identified with a single garage door and front door defined by a canopy. Fenestration may be described as playful, but it draws from historic precedent in the area by combining bays, small punched windows, and large industrial scale glazing. The architectural form is eroded in places to suggest a series or forms built in sequence, in the continued spint of individual expression. The West wall takes advantage of the presently undeveloped adjoining property."     - Paul Merrick Architects
