Changing architecture

This building sits at the corner of Greene Avenue and St. Catherine. Once a bank as the writing and large crest attests to, when the branch closed it had to find a new use. The last incarnation was as an antique shop and the building owner saw fit to erect the (not quite) portico. It detracts from the original architecture. The antique shop closed a couple of years ago and the building was sold. It still has not really found a new use. I hope the new owner does not have ideas of adding to the architecture yet again - unless it is to remove the addition thus adding to the building's beauty.


  1. Let us wait and watch; fingers crossed:)
    Nice post !

  2. I like European style antique buildings. It’s beautiful and looks like the old architectures I’ve been familiar with in my hometown Kobe. I agree with Rajiv.
