[QUOTE=MTLskyline;5791123]Best re-cladding in this thread so far. Did the vocation of the building change?

Since original construction it has bounced back and forth from hotel to apartment building. It is now an apartment building with a very nice upscale restaurant and recently completed parking structure.

The parkade next door might be an even better reclad than this one.

It wasn't just a facade replacement, either. Didn't they gut the entire thing and renovate it like crazy? I remember when I worked for Hamilton a lot of city offices were moved to the former Eatons store and other places.

I love the University of Calgary reclad. It completely changes the building, from something you wouldn't notice to something it'd be hard not to have an opinion about.

Yep everything was gutted out and stored away. Everything got returned and restored. The facade went from marble to polished cement, guess no one can notice the difference.

I don't have any before pics, but the building across 7th Ave from the The Dome and Home Towers (former TD Square) was reclad in the mid 90s. It was a 60s era building that had been vacant for 15 years.

Not sure, but are you referring to removing all of the FGP facade? Or just the glass? The Fort Garry Place buildings are gorgeous, and should in no way be changed, accept maybe the balconies.

I mean the entire facade of all FGP buildings.


I'd settle for the windows and balconies being changed and maybe a redesign or refurbishment of the revolving restaurant pod.

Really? The FGP buildings are gorgeous. They don't need a reclad, maybe a little refurbishment, but they definitely don't need a reclad. I know Winnipeg is lacking in the glass department, but aside from our modernist structures and historic buildings, there is nothing else that should remain the same as much as FGP.

I would much rather see the Radisson, Trizec, Manitoba Assembly of Chiefs (Kensington), Rogers (Newport), any of the downtown commie blocks, The Delta, etc. All get reclad's before FGP.

In fact I would say that FGP is far too much of a focal point in our skyline to change it. Remember they were built with similar facades as the Hotel.

The original Designer of them also built basically a castle in St Vital, just on the Seine river, it is all ritzy condos, but it looks just like a castle, I beleive the road is still called Niakwa Place. Also the designers HOUSE if you want to call it, just North West of Mcphillips past the Perimeter was also designed as a Castle, it is huge, but looks stupid in the middle of a fields surround by dumpy yards.

Sorry for the Phone picture off a computer, but this is off Google Earth, I couldn't get the house as they never drove by it.

Hold down alt+print screen, then open an image editor (like MS Paint) and press ctrl+v to make a screen cap.

The details on an individual basis look good but as a whole, the building severely violates the rules of Beaux Arts. That condo was designed inside-out; historic buildings were designed outside-in. Symmetry and proportion are the two more important parts of that architectural style and that building fails in both.

it's actually 1 Evergreen Pl that's being reclad. 7 and 11 Evergreen are the two buildings across the street on the east side of Evergreen.

The worleyparsons one in Calgary was a good one - boy, that was an oppressive bunker before - it's hard to find a picture of what it looked like before they gutted it, but it was bleak.
