Can't wait for the inevitable Shoppers/TD/Aroma to move in
I'm going to guess the holy grail of disengaged street level: blocked out windows of a Shoppers, blocked out windows of a dispensary, blocked out windows of an LCBO....

As much as I disagree with much of a lot of the romanticism and nostalgia that keeps so many century-old mediocre facades plastered onto modern buildings in this city, it's nice to see someone not just clean one up, but honour and respect it.
Yes, this is the example to follow.

I agree. It appears that the entire structure , or least the entire square footage, of the heritage buildings have been kept rather than the first 2 or 3 metres (depth) of the frontage. This approach keeps the spirit alive rather than just a meagre attempt.
