The hoarding is down at the once and future TD Canada Trust (2220 Bloor Street West), replacing a one story modernist (late 60’s or early 70’s?) bank building.
It’s a bit out of step with the neighbourhood being 2 tone stone and glass -the previous one was just as out of step as well, all steel and glass -and being 3 stories tall where almost everything else is 2. The intensification is inevitable in such a desirable area, and no doubt it provides more space for “banking services”.
Not completely bland is the best you can hope for. Like any facelift, you just hope it ages well.
Update : now with embeded Google Maps because, well because I can (now)
