Facades

I showed you a pic of the lovely Victorian homes (HERE) that are to be part of a commercial condo complex and I went by recently to check the progress. Well, it is quite apparent that only the facades of the old beauties are being retained and the complex will be built above them. I'll keep an eye on this project to see how it turns out but it is a bit disappointing to see this stage.

Hmmm. I agree it's a bit disappointing.

Hopefully it will look better. But is is sad to see the houses disappear.

Andy said...

Very interesting peek of things to come. Spoiler alert. Here is a link where you can see a drawing of the finished project.

Boy, you can't trust anyone anymore! I didn't check Andy's link 'cause I want to see your photos when it's finished.

A very sad sight, indeed!

Well, I guess it's good to at least keep the fa├žade but it does seem a shame that the whole buildings couldn't be preserved.

Interesting to see when it's all completed.

A bit weird, if not outright unreal... Great picture, by the way!

I had a feeling that would happen Pat, still the old facades will have a nicer street presence than modern glass!

progress... *sigh*

William Kendall said...

Quite a shame. Not that condo developers see it that way.

Karen said...

Oh, that's too bad.

Stephanie said...

Too bad!

Hmm, think I might just prefer a whole new building after all.

Revrunner said...

It'll be interesting to see what does come of it.

Building and replacing always long and weary times, but once it's all completed hopefully it will shine!

What a shame. It's almost as bad as 'faux Victorian' when they do this.

Cloudia said...

Can't wait to see the finished product.

I agree, this is a bit disappointing. And developers never lie, or exaggerate their intentions, do they?!
