I'm a lil confused. Is the glass façade going to face Wellington, or is it facing inwards into a courtyard or something?

it faces Wellington, but yes, it will be facing a courtyard once the new 3 storey building along Wellington is built.

With the relocation of the helipad HHS will work up a plan for the office building, 8 storey, which is highlighted as the green square.

i can't be bothered to make a separate thread for this. i noticed that the old stone building on the general hospital's property is being renovated. i seem to recall the plan being a long-term residence for families kinda like ronald mcdonald house. maybe i'll get a photo of it.

yea, I think it's called the Mark Price house or something like that.
Great news. We knock down too many old buildings in this city, glad to see one being restored.
Can't say the same for James South/Charlton now...looks like heck already.

I usually love my view from my apt... however, when I look west right now all I see is a wrecking crane and a half-torn-down historic home
Needless to say, those curtains have been shut the last 3 days. hahaha

Good to hear about that old carriage house or whatever it used to be. I always loved it, yet been scared by it at the same time. haha As a kid going to Real McCoy sports (now closed) on Barton, we would pass it. I always thought it was like the Hanzel & Gretle house or something hahaha

This is taken looking at the north side or the top of the diagram. The crane on the left is the building to the east with the blue arrow. The "NEW" crane going in is for the bulding to the west, red arrow.

I was just down here on yesterday, and the whole area is lookin busy. The new park across the street (where the bridge is attached to) is awesome.

Only complaint I have is that the nicer building is being stuck behind the hospital and will be enclosed by the other building which will run along Wellington. They should have put THIS bldg along Wellington! The streetscape needs it!! haha

I totally agree!
I know they want the building to face the green courtyard, but I wish it faced Wellington St.
