Abandoning a building never does it any favours either.
The city has just decided to withdraw its application for giving the building heritage status - it has no authority, it being owned by the Ontario Reality Corporation.
This building looks like shit down there.It would be a nice location to build the new Toronto Aquarium that they have been planning for the past years.
The heritage 1917 Toronto Harbour Commission building next door could be a nice addition to the aquarium plans.
What? There isn't enough empty space there already that they have to tear down perfectly fine buildings to site an Aquarium?
And given what's been built in that neighbourhood over the last couple years, 90 Harbour is hardly ruining the aesthetic. I'll take its brick-y normalcy over all its neighbours' glass and plastic.
