The dominant form of apartment building design in major urban areas in Canada is the double-loaded corridor type in which most apartments tend to face in opposite directions and have exposure only on one face of the building, although the plan shape could vary.  Less common are three wing, four wing (cross) and L-shaped plans.  In these buildings, some apartments might have exposure to more than one side of the building and only rarely on opposite sides.
