Summerside is an example of residential intensification on an existing transit corridor that un- til now was not pedestrian friendly. A reclaimed Brownfield site, its location on Warden is im- mediately adjacent to the subway at St. Clair. A city planned park and community centre and a desire to accommodate more families within the city prompted grade access townhouse forms. To achieve densities appropriate to the city’s plans for intensification, only higher density multi-family units were used, with reduced setbacks and very innovative zoning, they set new standards for residential development. Three storey, very narrow or wider but very shallow townhouses and back-to-back townhouses were designed to suit the irregularities of the site. To achieve cohesion with such dense forms a decision was made to limit the brick, shingle and trim to single colours. Paint colours for doors and shutters are more varied and playful. Ample use of balconies and porches help create community.


How do the people who create these horrible things manage to get out of bed in the morning?

There is a reason houses weren't built like this 100 years ago. It's because it's ugly as sin. What were the architects thinking when they designed this? My guess is, they weren't.

Bricks + Stone + Stucco...why so unambitious? Should have tried to incorporate some siding in there as well.

I love the terrace overtop the front entrance, perfect for nude sun bathing.

Great Job!

i was wondering what was wrong, because i was wanted to like it based on the description, then i realized that there were garages in front of every house. ya, so, remember, when you build stuff for cars, it means your not building it for people. it also makes it ugly, and useless in the future when there will be no cars. k thanks bye

Seems like a good example of infill medium density development with townhouses that don't look odd or unfinished at some point like many being built in Toronto. Good articulation along front walls and a good mix of material and colours, with an identifiable feature at the corner unit to create a sense of place.

Whoever decided to put these exterior materials together should be prevented from ever selecting exterior building materials ever again.

I would love to hear why people wrote "love it", "looks great" and "awesome".
Maybe their employers told them to come help the company cause.


Horrendous infill TH housing! More of the same historicist crap... totally out of context with the surroundings, which are not romantic to start with.
