Restored And Remade
A couple of blocks west on Queen St W from yesterday's buildings you will find this Second Empire building which was in relatively the same condition as they are. This one has become part of a new structure designed by Montgomery Sisam Architects where just the facade has been retained and restored and a side and back addition have been done. So even though this is a Heritage Conservation District that doesn't mean that changes can't happen. For those of you who know Toronto this was the former location of Silver Snail comics who had been there for many many years! And of course there is another condo tower going up in the background.
