More Reuse On King West

This fine example of a Classical Revival building is the next door neighbour of yesterday's building. It was constructed in 1903 as the factory and offices of the Dominion Paper Box Company and it too has now been historically designated so there is little danger of it being demolished and the space used for even more condos downtown. I love all the wonderful details and will show you a close-up of that doorway another day.

This is absolutely gorgeous. It would have been a sin had that building been destroyed.

I'm posting a bit on our blog on our website, Pat: http://www.landlfotos.com/blog.

A kiss.

Those windows are a real benefit to the condo owners.

And -- again -- I love it. Just take my comment from yesterday and cut and paste.

I adore both these neighbours Pat- something grand and yet warm and inviting about them.

These are both just gorgeous. I can't wait to see tomorrow's shot of the doorway, it looks not only spectacular, but very different.

Another beauty.

Two great buildings. Glad they were saved and repurposed.
