TD Bank Rises

So the TD Bank is on the way up.

After a lot of underground work the building rose above ground pretty quickly. Too bad it’s going to look like it does. Another pedestrian unfriendly glass wall, and another dead block in the core.

Reader Syl, sent in these photos of the site.

Syl also noticed the old Canada Gift Shop sign from next door has been removed, and was leaned up against a wall, before being carted away to the landfill. The sign looks to be from the 1960’s and is now gone for ever, one of the last of the old overhanging signs on Ouellette.

Thanks for sending along the photos Syl!
