First off, let me say, like most of you on this site, I'm a big fan of condos. I live in one and I'm very excited about all the new developments going up in the city. However, reading through the Toronto Then & Now thread on this forum, I started thinking, I wonder if the condos we love will stand the test of time - both from a purely physical standpoint (are they engineered to stand for 150 years) and from an aesthetic perspective (will they be considered important historical building worth preserving 150 years from now?) I pick 150 years out of the air, it could be 100 years it could be 200 years or more. But when you look at the 150 year old buildings currently standing in Toronto that are historically significant and worth saving - will condos be among these in another 150 years? Are condos even meant to be permanent? Or is it unfair to expect condos to be a historically significant building like other buildings we love? Anyway, love to hear some opinions.
