the frontenac hotel looks cool....never seen that before.
Keep in mind that the Richardson building lot was a gas station at the time too. So there were some positives through the passage of time too.

Also keep in mind that the industrial powerhouse of Winnipeg's former downtown no longer applies today. Thus vacant lots are abundant.. waiting for new oportunities in today's knowledge economy. Part of the problem is nobody wants to be near the rail line.


I agree the Frontenac Hotel is cool..... but relitively unknown today.
