I think that there was very little redeeming architecture in the Paul Wolf electric supply townhouse.
It's interesting to compare it to the regal "Gotham" condo-conversion next door. The juxtaposition of these two buildings tells me that Toronto's problem with neighbouring scale was even a problem 80 years ago.
The Paul Wolf building looks like it would have made a good site for artist studios ala 48 Abell, but oh well...
Glad to see a one-storey strip mall bite the dust though. They have no business being allowed to exist anywhere downtown, especially on a major street like King. Why was something like that approved in the first place??
Now if only the same fate would befall the almost identical, awful one-storey strip on the northeast corner of King and Dufferin!
