Does anyone know what they will do with the north wall of the old bank building? It's difficult to tell from the rendering but it looks like there will be a small glass atrium, though it doesn't look large enough to cover the whole thing.
The details of the heritage building are not itemized on the architectural plans available on the City's website, but there are images that make it look like a limestone veneer might be applied on the exposed area, to match the front of the bank.
I haven't been actively posting on the site for a long time now, but I do still follow along.
Yesterday I met up with a buddy to do some street photography and stopped by Massey Hall to check out progress. While walking by one of the guys on site yelled out for me to snap a pic. I took a few and told them to come check out this forum so they could see. So if you're that guy in the middle, let me know that you saw it
I just now had the chance to get the pics off my camera. This is a small version but I have a large one so DM me.
I agree regarding this being one of the more interesting projects going on right now. If you will allow me to reflect for a moment I find it interesting that the best and most creative work is often being done where the context puts restrictions on the design process. The worst work is often the work done when the owner and designer have free rein.
