^Damn. The original is so great. Probably terrible natural light inside, but the Deco is so beautiful.

I agree. It was originally an industrial building of some sort?

Ah, alright. I know it's expensive, but because I'm used to Ontario and it's commonality of brick structures, I just assumed. I suppose that concrete isn't in great condition for being covered up.


Also, the Montreal reclad of a reclad is unfortunate....the new design looks so run of the mill.....that is a strange deco design, but looks nice in some respects.
