The Shroud of Moses.

That building seems to be in perpetual renovation.

Yes, it's a fixer-upper alright!

Hi there!
Is this the Richmond Street in Toronto?
If so, it makes me homesick...
So many CONDOS downtown, eh?
Later...

It is the west and south sides of the CityTV building on Queen Street undergoing a facelift.

Unfortunately, while this is indeed the age of condominiums in Toronto they will quickly lose their lustre and this will happen simultaneously all over the city. The general architectural appeal is not great to begin with and I'm afraid this mass glass attack will be seen for what it really is within a few short years - a cookie cutter approach to design.

Densley populated cities like NYC are packed tightly with condos and other ugly and banal buildings but everyone loves to live there. That's because the street level space deployment is more important than what the building looks like when you gaze up past the stores, cafes and restaurants.
