Is that De La Salle High School in the foreground of the first pic, Ottawan?
When the school is open, their grounds are open to the public. I once strolled inside and discovered that from their playing field you could take a great shot of the skyline (not as good as the shots above, at ground level the view is partially obscured by trees). There was some kind of sports activities at the field, and I chatted with the coach / instructor, who told me that the land south of the field where the Charbonnel townhomes now stand (they were in early stages of construction then) used to belong to the school, but they sold it to the developer.

Would be interesting to see some creeping vines (Well-maintained of course, as to not engulf the resident's windows) planted at the base of each of the crimping fins.

I'm terrible at landscape design though.

Anyone knows if the heritage facades have been restored and when they're going to unveil them? Last time I passed by, workers seemed to be replacing (not removing) the hoardings.
