This project, like its counterpart by some of the same authors in the Ontario Regional Competition, was recognized primarily for the strongly logical ordering of its basic site organization. The loop road system, direct access of vehicles to units, simple resolution of orientation considerations and provision of collective landscaped open space were all admired by the jury. A general reservation was felt about the underdeveloped design of the facades. Some jurors were concerned about the stacking of one-storey units, one on top of the other. They felt this added unnecessarily to cost and generated difficulties of access from vehicle to unit. These concerns, in their view, prevented Submission 9 from being ranked any higher. One juror, on the other hand, called for higher recognition for this submission than for Submissions 5, 7 and 12. To quote, "It was a sound scheme. It could not be faulted in its handling of the site topography, orientation, car and pedestrian relationship, landscaping and the several other criteria we retained."
