Bank to Condos …..

Over a hundred years ago, the Dominion Bank opened its new Headquarters on the SW corner of King St and Yonge St.

Now in 2014 this building is undergoing restoration work which includes repairing and cleaning the very rare white terra cotta facade; in the process of trying to make it look like it did in 1914.

This is the second restoration work, as in 2006 a new portion was added that rose 49 Floors, while keeping the original 14 storey building.

This landmark today has offices, hotel suites, restaurants and condos with luxurious penthouses.

When done right, those converted buildings provide housing with a lot of character

Joan, yes, as space is getting less and less in the Downtown core  ......

 

Ed, you are right, some new condo buildings are 'cookie cutter'  ..... all the units look the same.
