The Gardiner: Hybrid 1-2-3 (Brandon Donnelly)

A quote from "Architect This City, Brandon Donnelly: :Last night a public meeting was held to discuss the 3 alternative designs for what has become known as the “hybrid” option. If you’d like a visual summary of the options, click here.

However, it also becomes more expensive.
