New designs for the proposed expansion of the iconic Fairmont Chateau Laurier were released on Thursday.
The new renderings show a two wing expansion of the hotel that is about 8% smaller than the original concept. It includes a new 8 story pavilion instead of the original 12 stories and a courtyard between the buildings. The bands on new glass windows will match the windows on Chateau.
Not long after the designs were shown to the public, the criticism online began and quite a lot of it, as seen in the tweets below. Many people agree that the new design blocks the beauty of the chateau’s exterior.
What do you think of the proposed design? Let us know.
