    Mike's new home will be 'bold' and encourage visitors to 'be bold'.

    "The idea of constructing a retreat to share with the worlds top thinkers developed over time, as the Lazaridis family fell in love with the lake and the agrarian landscape. They wanted to build something bold and Canadian. "

    My hope is that when they come here, theyll see all the good and be inspired by it, Mr. Lazaridis says during a first-ever media tour of his project earlier this week. [I want] to inspire the groups to think and think big and be bold."

    That has got to be the ugliest design I have ever seen.
    I'm sorry, Mike.

    Yea I'm not really liking the design. Seems like it doesn't belong in the woods.

    It certainly doesn't spark any warm homey feelings.

    In fact it seems like it was bult to house Earth's first Borg collective !

    Looks a lot like the German WWII fortress bunkers depicted in some of the old war movies.

    That home is amazing; I love it. That's really cool how they used stone from the bed of Lake Huron in the construction.

    Awesome views and looks to have great potential. Any place looks odd when still under construction. Give it some time to be decorated, furnished and landscaped.

    As was with RIM when he ran the company, this complex is taking longer to complete than was originally expected.
