There would have been a really good case for turning this neighbourhood into a kind of "old town" around 1960 or so. A lot of great buildings were torn down, and many of them had some kind of national significance.
They tore down the RBC head office for that ugly as hell RBC midrise there now? Ugh. Lots of idiotic decisions taken in the 1960s.

Surprising that the bank itself, would let its original head office go. Dumb.
