That's interesting. So I'm still not clear what the roof's original colour was? Was it red?

 

Those illustrations suggest that they want to do something good, maybe better than I'd expect on this site (similar to how they're going above and beyond across the street). I'm happy about that. But I'm thinking the seafoam spandrel taints the whole thing. What if those bands were some slick metallic silver or bronze tone? And if the roof of the chapel was made to match?

Something like that Travelodge building would make an interesting replacement for the old Shoppers Drug Mart on Douglas Street, especially if it involved the (vacant?) bank building at Douglas & Yates.

Did anyone catch the reception by CoTW? I've been on the road and unable to follow along as much as I would have liked.


Know it all.
