Canderel Building – January 2002

March 24, 2014

Here’s another picture of the corner of Riverside and Ouellette with work a little farther along. As you can see the building has risen above ground and is starting to get windows. It’s still concrete colour as the metal cladding has not yet been attached to the building.

    Well it’s been a nice start, for 12 years, but when are they building the rest of it on top?

    I prefer it without the metal cladding.

    It was supposed to be 32 floors, standing at 463ft.

    Instead we got 14 floors at 194ft, a good thing considering the building has never been fully occupied.

    I miss fast eddy’s arcade. 2 floors of entertainment for everyone on the river.

    Gary, no. They couldn’t sell the condos that were planned for it so they scaled it down. Who wants to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for a condo with no balcony?

    This is still the BIGGEST mistake CityHall ever did. Thanks to the little man syndrome of Mike Hurst….

    I don’t find the building all to offensive with exception to the ground floor. The complete lack of retail is disgusting. This building creates a dead block. Why on earth they didn’t divide up that ground floor into 2000sf retail tenants facing Riverside and Pitt is beyond me. Now they have an office tenant, I believe some sort of insurance company taking up the entire ground floor… not good.
