Beautiful victorian building replaced by one way less interesting architecturally. One consolation, they maintained the commercial space on ground floor so the building can interact with whatever is left of life on Sparks Street.

If one looks north up Metcalfe from Laurier Street, back in the mid 20thC period, the Peace Tower would have soared above the three storey building at the corner of Sparks and Metcalfe. When the present building was built, it was high enough to obscure this view. I've often wondered if the removal of the upper floors could return a view of the Peace Tower.
