The scaffolding is still up around 2853 Dundas Street West but the new face of an old building is already visible and I like what I see.
The missing brickwork has been restored, the facade is retuned to its original brick and the Thompson Block looks to be on its way to being one of the best buildings in the Junction and a great example of building restoration.
According to their website the restoration company, Micro Clean is also responsible for other restoration projects in the Junction including the West Toronto Paint building on the corner of Pacific and Dundas.
Hopefully the building owner on the North West corner of Keele and Dundas will take notice and schedule his building soon.
During this project much has been said about the street level tenants and the cliental of the Concourse Restaurant. Hopefully this project will motivate the restaurant owners to match the building exterior and cleanup the inside up for the enjoyment of its existing customers and the rest of the community.
