City of Roses

Here’s an old postcard from the early 1960’s, that I don’t think was ever posted to the site before. To me the most interesting part of the card is the bottom half, with the view of Wyandotte/Ouellette. The green TD bank in the lower right was designed by Johnson & McWhinnie in 1959, so the card is at least from 1960.

At one point there was a plan to add an extra two floors to the top of the building. The plans for the addition are available in the archives in the Johnson-McWhinnie collection. The building was recently sold, after sitting empty since the TD bank left, anyone have any idea about future plans for the building?
