A simple pumpkin run turned into a candy battle last night, so your humble correspondent wasn’t able to make it to the planning meeting for the Beer Store townhouse development . Frances Nunziata’s people, though, have put the plans up on her site.
The proposal has 39 three-storey townhouses each with a small yard. There would be parking for two cars on most of the homes, and extra spaces for five visitors.
There are no plans for the condos, but each will be about 1300 square feet. The yards are much smaller—between 15’x15′ and, roughly, 15’x40′. Eight townhomes will face Weston Road. They will be four storeys tall, but will not have a yard.
All good developments have an aspirational-but-baldfaced lie for a name; my favourite is Oakdale Village by the Conservatory Group on Torbarrie road, where they razed a forest to put up a muddy suburb by the 400. Any contributions from our readers? A few from YHC:
- Bottlecap lofts (let’s hope you don’t get staph from stepping on one)
- The Beer Gardens
- Stubbies’ flats (I actually like that name)
