I must say, I thought this building was going to be butt-ugly, but it's starting to look kinda nice!

Thanks for the pics!


P.S. Just think, I initially thought that Claridge Plaza was going to be ncie-looking...

I must say - I like what they're doing at street level.

It's one of the best looking building in the city. Just think how great Rideau St. would look with all façades like that.

I didn't think they knew how to build like that anymore.

It blends perfectly with the recently-refurbished facades just to the West.

Yeah, I second all the above. I often find myself going west bound and the top of the building visually integrates perfectly with the similar shaped peaks and spikes of the chateau and parliament, but then the street level, despite being different from the taller portion of the building integrates really really well with what's there.

Hey Harls and everyone for that matter, notice the building directly opposite on Nicholas to the west side of the street. I swear its a secret government building covered so no one can look inside. its so dark as opposed to 90 George.

The building on the corner of Rideau and Cumberland is a DND building. It says so right on the sign.

I guess I'm the lone dissenter.



(photos by me)

Although I do like that they've maintained the heritage streetfront, the way they've implemented it looks really cheap to me. Notice how on either side the brick abruptly cuts to cheap-looking concrete after only a few metres. Also, the rear end (facing George) is hugely out of proportion with the street...and features more ugly concrete. Way too much grey for my tastes.

No no no no no non. You are thinking of the wrong building. It is the corner of Rideau and NICHOLAS and Besserer. Its the one you cannot see inside, All dark and such.

Yo, I thought I read somewhere saying they will be installing a large Rolex clock in front of the building. Looking at the facade, where are they gonna put that thing?

Canril was required by the City/Heritage to conserve the old Rideau facade or rebuild it exactly. The Market Cinemas (the original (approximately) building planned for this site) project would have looked the same. Looks like they did a reasonable job.

I took this photo of the original building (Ogilvies?) in August 2001 for future reference. Here in the future we see that, colour aside, the Architect and Builder seem to have done a very good matching-job.
