looks pretty good with the brick. I worry that it might look horrendous by the time the stucco is applied as shown in the rendering.

I don't think stucco is being used in this reno. The original brick elements will remain. The beige elements may be stucco, but I get a feeling it is going to be maintenance-free cladding.

It does look pretty damn good. David Blanchard strikes again! He is probably the best developer in the city. At least he has one top notch restoration under his belt (Gowlings) and now it looks as though he might score another one with this ...

Looks like I was wrong about the brick. They've started covering the brick on the west wall with some sort of insulation. Regardless, it is shaping into a good-looking building that remains true to the basic original elements.

This is a modernist style building that was designed by the same architect that did City Hall, Stanley Roscoe. I believe he is still around, although retired.

I like how the actual building looks just like the rendering. I wish more projects could manage that!

The actual building actually looks better than the rendering in my opinion.

I mean, it's stucco, but darn nice still.

Good job.

Ya, I'm not a fan of the stucco... but the sun shimmering off the windows every AM when I walk by is enough to make me forget about the stucco haha

Landscaping is next I guess. What a great addition to Hunter St!

yes, you're right...it's those windows. They are really nice. Perhaps that's what makes this project so good despite the fact that the stucco will look like shite in a few years.
