If you look at the side where some of it was exposed to the soda blasting of the building beside it you will see roughly the same colour as the newly sodablasted building peeking underneath - so probably the same colour as the bricks that were used to fill in the cornice on that building.

I am curious as to whether they are going to take the bricks out of the filled in cornice space to properly anchor in a new cornice - the brick doesn't look too stable - perhaps that is why that particle board is slapped on the front there..

It's definitely buff/yellow. You can see a row of the facade bricks here if you look closely, just below the orange ones which are likely the inner layer of bricks/fill bricks.

eueueueueuhhhh we may both be right.

As evidenced in the circular area - that area on the arch looks like the same brick colour as the building beside it, however the diamond pattern INSIDE the arch looks to be the yellow colour.. perhaps it is a 2 coloured building? You can see the yellowish tan brick right underneath where they filled the cornice in.. I made the circle the yellowish tan colour the bricks might originally be to also offset the orange of that "exposed brick" on the arch inside of it more.

There is one other unsettling option as well - that the bricks are all yellow glazed, but clay coloured underneath that glazing - in which case that arch might be damaged showing the layer underneath the yellow. I really want to see this building cleaned now. That and with its original cornice put back on.

This entire project looks great...I am really glad that a lot of developers are refurbishing the older buildings, vs tear them down completely...

Hamiltonians have started to take a stand - whereas before their voices weren't being heard they are now - whether it was the city disallowing the thomas building to be entirely demolished, or the citizens speaking our against the king st buildings by the gore being torn down, or the entire restoration of westdale.. there is a real push to retain the heritage of the city, which I love
