The smaller building to the south does not seem like it’s worth saving very minimum details on it that are remotely interesting. The red brick building beside and at that direct corner though... has a lot of character. Glad they are trying to save these though. As a Main Street that has just glass canyons looks bad anyways. These heritage fronts keep the charm along Yonge. (And Queen street)
It will makes sense once the facade is completely cleaned and restored.

Quite the Berlin Wall going up there. I don't remember other façade retention projects (King Blue etc.) doing the same thing?

East United had a whole bunch of concrete blocks for its heritage facade, though not configured quite like this
