King and York

Looking east at King and York beside the Globe & Mail building. Parts of its facade were preserved in the “new” Globe building at Front & Spadina, a building from which the Globe is about to decamp once their new offices go up on the eastern part of their Front Street site. Much of what once stood on King Street (some already demolished in this photo) has vanished under gleaming new towers. The gleam on the BMO tower was not quite so bright as hoped, and its original stone cladding was replaced quite recently (final work at ground level is in progress).
