Perhaps combining the Gowlings parking lot and repurposed Old Bank of Montreal building will help camouflage!

I don't think that's the issue here, if referring to 25 Main West. By today's standards it is not exceptional, but for its time it is a nice skyscraper. Could have been 5-10 floors taller, and about 50% wider on each axis. Compete with the former Stelco Tower for office building supremacy in the core (unfortunate as it is to have such limited competition!!!)

Something great could be built on that space you mention. I hope it happens.

There are probably measures that could enhance 25 Main W. today. But they may take away from the original intent of the design. We've already lost one of Stanley Roscoe's office complexes (The Undermount and MacLean Hunter buildings... converted to that gawd-awful Chateau Royale thing) and it would be a shame to lose another or even just cover it up from various angles.

It seems to extend a bit east of that. The fire explanation urban_planner noted may cover that.

Nice to see it is NOT a Hamilton smokestack issue.
