Old & New

Behind this barrier a 50-storey condominium building is under construction The painting depicts the old Gooderham Mansion. The Victorian style mansion will remain relatively intact and will be incorporated as part of the condo. The historic building which was initially a private home, then an exclusive girls’ school and currently the Clarion Hotel will house amenities, such as a guest suite, theatre, private dining and party rooms.

  1. Thats a lot to do. Wonder if everything blends together but I am afraid not Andy.

  2. At least it will be used again and not demolished. Those old buildings have so much more character than the new ones.

  5. I like the way this painting looks like you are looking through a sort of screen and seeing the actual house. It will be interesting to see how that beautiful old building is incorporated into the new one.

  6. Time will tell if it works. A historical house here has been successfully incorporated into an office tower behind it.

  8. 50 storey condo! Height restriction where I am is 3 stories above grade. There is a helluva difference between your world and mine.

  9. That's a big project. There is a restoration project going on here too. Summer sure brings out plenty of construction projects to either begin, continue or finish. Hope this one completes its goal.

  10. The painting has a somewhat ghostly appearance. I hope they're able to integrate the mansion well with the condo.

  11. It will be interesting to see how it comes out. Something similar was done in Hartford with the Goodwin building. I should show a photo sometime.
