Old and New

Posted by Rick (Toronto, Canada) on 8 August 2018 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

The ongoing full speed ahead building boom in Toronto is now devouring much of Yonge street. Recent demolition has revealed an old tower that will be preserved as a part of some nondescript sky scraping behemoth that will add yet another glass sheathed monstrosity to our skyline.

The old clock tower is the only thing left with character. :-(

It seems that this is going on in lots of big cities. The old is swept away for the new.
