Speaking of lighthouses; I was walking by the Trillium today and noted the 'Daleks' standing guard. Any thoughts on the new 'Doctor' ?
Fridays are good days to stray off-topic. :tup:

There is now a white/yellow EY (Ernst & Young) logo on the south face of the Duke/Lwr Water corner of the building.

Went to the new bank for the first time. Pretty casual compared to the old building. I just came from work and felt over dressed for the occasion! A bank should be clad in expensive marble or other stone, not look like a living room with hardwood floors.

Because CIBC also renovated their bank the only nice bank left is Scotiabanks downtown location. All the rest are living rooms now. :yuck:

Scotia Bank is an impressive interior. More grand than the 'Elephant and Castle', but the E&C is very nice.

I agree. Took a look during Doors Open this year and was very impressed. It is a beautiful building!

A little off-topic, but has there been any word on the status of the 'Elephant and Castle' bank building? I heard another restaurant was going to open there some time ago, but that seems to have fizzled out.

I assumed that was on hold after the Commerce Square project was proposed—now that it's on hold, I wonder if occupation of the building is also on hold. Would be a shame to see it go empty for years for that reason, but I understand why a tenant wouldn't want to go in there (and set up in such a big space) just to get booted during a lengthy construction period.

Last time I walked by and looked in the windows it was being used as an office/workshop/storage for the TD renovation. It was weird seeing the old decor but with temporary wood shelving and tools. Hopefully it can be restored after work is complete.

A giant sticky note billboard has gone up in the windows of Waterside Centre for Nocturne.
