Just an Idea…

I was forwarded the following concept sketch from Greg Heil, chair of the Windsor Heritage Committee:

Following the news that came out about the TD move to build a new HQ in downtown Windsor on the site of the old Manning House.

Mr. Heil, who is an Architect sketched up this idea, as a possible way to incorporate the old TD Bank facade that’s in storage, into the new building.

He’s sent the sketch along and asked me to post his idea, and see what the readers of IM.com thought about it?

TD had proposed a glass box, but this is a great chance to reuse that TD facade…
