Style at 60 Richmond St E

I love this newly opened apartment building on Richmond St right downtown. A joint venture between Toronto Community Housing and Toronto Housing Co-operative, it offers affordable housing to low income families. Designed by Stephen Teeple, it is built to LEED environmental standards and has still managed to be a positive visual addition to this mostly commercial neighbourhood. Quite an improvement over the usual square box apartments!
