I am waiting with some interest to see the old Canary Restaurant Building uncovered again. It has very good 'bones' so if they restored it properly it should look great. For those who do not know it is Listed and described as:


Palace Street School, 1859, Joseph Sheard, architect; 1869 addition, William Irving, architect; 1890, addition for D'Arcy Hotel, David Roberts Jr., architect; 1891,
addition completed by Sproatt and Rolph, architects; 1906, became Cherry Street Hotel

And hopefully a business will open that really showcases its beauty, which means NO POT SHOP, NAIL SALON, DRY CLEANER, DRUG STORE OR BANK.

From what I understand, Dream retains ownership of the commercial spaces in the Canary District. So far, they have done a good job of attracting unique businesses. Except for TD Bank and Fika (a cannabis store), there are no chain shops.

I do not anticipate Dream leasing to another bank or cannabis retailer. This will likely be a prestige space, not suitable for a nail salon or dry cleaner, so I think you're safe.
 
I like the building but I wish that the townhouses on the south side would have used the same solid looking panels as the rest of the podium, rather than the cheaper looking little window wall panels with all those mullions.....it takes away from an otherwise laudable cladding job
 
…. Is there not a layer between the silver panel and the insulation / support brackets? You can see the backing wall right through the perforations…..
