PDP #169: Glass and Girders

Whether it be called Metropolis, Toronto Life Square, 10 Dundas East, or something else entirely, that billboard-festooned concrete structure at the northeast corner of Yonge and Dundas has been there long enough now that it's hard to picture what used to occupy the space. Though, that has a lot to do with the site being an empty brownfield for a few years between demolition of the existing buildings and the commencement of construction.

This photo was taken on October 18, 2006 from Dundas Square, while construction was still ongoing. I would post a higher-quality one, but this is the only in-progress one I have - and it's not exactly as if I can just pop downtown and take another one.
