I have to say, while in line at the Roasterie today I noticed how much better the atmosphere of the street is without that imposing, hideous mass looming over the west side. Airier, much more light and sky.

Once it’s a dirt lot with temp fencing or hoarding it won’t be so great for the street level continuity but the previous building sucked for that too.

Will gladly give up the sky for another Annex or Lido though.

Maybe I can find a genie to grant some wishes and we can get rid of the other one to the north.

That first shot almost looks like a render! What a great job they did

The Fourth Street Bridge could really have used some TLC as part of this project. New black steel railings, blast the shitty chipped paint off the support pylons and arches (or better yet paint it white like Centre Street Bridge) and voila, you have a nice historic bridge with timeless finishes.
