Ottawa's #MondrianBuilding at 324 Laurier Ave West is 78.21m high with 23 floors above ground. Construction started in 2006 and ended in 2009 (see https://www.emporis.com/buildings/252967/324-laurier-west-mondrian-ottawa-canada). Before it was built, there was a parking lot for years at this site. For a long time there was a small commercial building, at least to as far back as the 1980s, which was home to a music shop that sold CDs etc. -- I think #RecordsOnWheels, but I can't confirm that yet. 🔴⚪️⚫️🏢

A different look at the #MondrianBuilding on #DowntownBank at #LaurierAveWest, a #CondoTower in #CentretownOttawa. This building has helped animate this end of #BankStreet in the evening -- the nearby government and business offices had tended to make this area pretty dead after 9pm. Now nearby pubs etc are a bit more dynamic then.
🏢🔴⚫️⚪️🔵
"Location Downtown Ottawa. Project Description Glass tower with red glass panels interspersed among the linear window system, as an homage to the Dutch painter Piet Mondrian. Size / Program 23-storey building containing 249 units, sitting atop a five-storey public parking podium enclosed in a glass screen. Architecture & Interior Design Core Architects. Development Partner Taggart Group, Ottawa. Status Completed 2011.

An homage to Dutch painter Piet Mondrian, this 23-storey building in Ottawa’s central business district is notable for its striking red panes of glass interspersed among strong linear elements. The building contains 245 contemporary condominiums and double-storey penthouses, retail at ground level, and a resort-inspired outdoor pool area. The condominium portion sits atop a five storey public parking podium, which is enclosed in a luminescent glass screen."

The #MondrianBuilding is at 324 Laurier Avenue West at #DowntownBank, while the #ShoppersDrugMart at the base of its podium is 174 Bank St at #LaurierAveWest. The developer was Toronto-based #UrbanCapital, and the architect firm was CORE Architects. It was completed in 2009 and has 23 stories above ground.
Along with the usual #condo amenities, it has a rooftop patio with pool and a security guard. The 2nd to 6th floors are the #parking garage (so to speak). The visuals of the building try to live up to the #Mondrian name -- is it #art? No, but it is a pleasant change from the usual boring #condo towers you see in some places.

Really loved seeing the #ONEGINmusical this week at the #NationalArtsCentre! Amazing performances, and a wonderful interpretation of a classic story of #unrequited love! The discussion with the performers afterward was also awesome! Special thanks to #HaileyGillis for the translation recommendation! 💔
🎼🎭
"Produced by The Musical Stage Company (Toronto, ON) in collaboration with NAC English Theatre
"Based on the poem by Pushkin and the opera by #Tchaikovsky.
Evgeni Onegin is a charismatic and bored bad boy who makes ruinous choices at every turn, leaving devastation in his wake. Based on Alexander #Pushkin’s serial poem about unrequited love in 19th century #Russia, this sweeping and romantic story for the ages gets a hip and acclaimed new theatrical treatment. With inventive choreography and a sharp, 21st century sensibility, #Onegin is as fresh today as it was nearly two centuries ago. From the creators of Do You Want What I Have Got? A Craigslist Cantata, including a raucous and uplifting score by creators #VedaHille and #AmielGladstone, this is the very definition of passion. #Lubov!"

The #NAC starts to fill up for #ONEGINmusical. I'll bet that many people in the #audience for this #musical also saw the #ballet earlier this year at the #NationalArtsCentre! Much of what's said below of the ballet in January could also be said of the musical production now.
🎼💃🏽🕺🏽 "An arrogant young aristocrat carelessly rebuffs a passionate young landowner’s daughter, and sets in motion the compelling melodrama of Onegin. Based on #Pushkin’s epic poem and the hugely popular #opera by #Tchaikovsky, this enduring love story is brought to vivid life by the exquisite virtuosity of the dancers and the superb narrative choreography of the legendary John Cranko.
"Cavalier flirtations, petty jealousies and a violent duel play out against the romantic splendor of Imperial Russia in this much anticipated revival that has garnered unanimous acclaim and instantaneous standing ovations. #Onegin is a delightful discovery for all classical ballet lovers!"

The back of this block on #BankStreet at #LaurierAveWest is more interesting to me than the front... who would have guessed that the older ( #19thCentury?) building wraps around the corner? And is the building at the corner actually older than it first appears? It seems to be a running theme on #DowntownBank, where buildings are reborn at a surprising rate. On the left that's #LEsplanadeLaurier  looming (which I posted in June), and on the right is the #MondrianBuilding. (And yes, that _is_ #snow! I took this photo early this year.)

Continuing my walk down #DowntownBank, I'm almost at #LaurierAveWest, where I've already posted the #JackLaytonBuilding and #LEsplanadeLaurier. Across #BankStreet from #SlinnsBlock (which I posted months ago) on the west side is #SnydersPlaza and two #19thCentury buildings. The one further north at #SlaterStreet, I posted in March. The one further south is most remarkable now for the stunning #mural painted on its northern face. Was this building ever named? Now it's just called 152 to 160 Bank. The second photo shows the northern wall of the plaza (really, the south wall of the northern building), where a bit of history is in a holding pattern:
🏢
"The north side of the plaza is bordered by the South wall of the corner building. Those two green arches were recovered from the facade of the original Heagle Building, which was at 148 Bank Street, and rebuilt in 1960 following the explosion. The intent is the current development [still not built after 7 years!] will re-use these arches in the Bank Street frontage of the new building."

Across #SlaterStreet on #DowntownBank from #TelusHoiseOttawa is the #SunburstBuilding. It's survival, like those of #SlinnsBlock right beside it which I posted in February, was down to just good fortune, as Urbsite explains:
🏢🌞
"Although many of Bank Street's buildings had dwellings above the storefronts the building at the southeast corner seems to have been designed for upper storey offices from the start. Earlier photos show trade and secretarial schools, dentists and other business professionals. There was a Salvation Army Citadel further down Slater Street.
"Its survival was purely accidental. In the mid-1960s the full block of Bank was destined to be razed for a 300-car parking structure with an office tower and hotel on top. Despite years of neglect it's still hanging on."
http://urbsite.blogspot.ca/2012/09/bank-and-slater-streets.html
🌞🏢
From a longer Urbsite article, which ends with the riddle of the #Sunburst name:
"The building at 129-131 Bank Street appears to have been built ca.1910 for the Matthews-Laird Co., meat suppliers, with two floors of offices and workshops to rent above. By the 1940s the storefront was divided into two for L.J. Fraser Ltd., haberdashers and a shoe repair shop." http://urbsite.blogspot.ca/2013/03/from-pork-to-perfection.html

Looking at the #TelusBuilding on the #SlaterStreet side, with the first two images looking west toward #DowntownBank and the last two looking around the entrance at 215 Slater. Here is @chmielarchitects's own words on their creation: 🏢📞📱
"TELUS House is located on the corner of Bank and Slater in downtown Ottawa and is Ottawa’s first LEED-NC office building in the downtown core. It was designed as a 9-storey office building with retail on ground and two levels of underground parking. Chmiel Architects worked closely with the client to create a building that addressed the TELUS “brand” with strong architectural identity. Careful consideration was given to the scale of the building respecting the retail street fabric. Attention was paid to the design of the main lobby, the incorporation of a feature stairwell, and notably the two exterior garden roof terraces.
"The project received a #LEED Gold rating in 2009, and a TOBY award for the best new office building under 200,000 ft2 in 2010."

Interestingly, #Chmiel's offices are on the same block on #BankStreet, in a heritage building.

A full daylight view of the #TelusHouse Building in Ottawa, on #SlaterStreet at Bank. This being #DowntownBank, naturally Urbsite has written on it:
🏢📞📱
"Until Telus House (Richard Chmiel Architect and Associates) the corner at Bank and Slater harboured downtown Ottawa's last clutch of little brick houses - although they had survived in a dilapidated state.
[…]
"Telus's street elevations have a shallow swoosh set above recessed lower floors. The five storey freestanding colonnade is a rhetorical flourish for displaying the company name.
"Three bays on #BankStreet have been pulled out to the sidewalk edge to create storefront units."

It's late at night, and #DowntownOttawa is beautiful. The main #Telus building in Ottawa is at 215 Slater at #BankStreet - apparently, @Telus likes to call its major building in each city #TelusHouse. Completed in 2008, this recent building is one of the more interesting modern #officebuildings in Ottawa. It's directly across #DowntownBank from the Jackson Building I just posted. 📞📱🏢

Just across #BankStreet from the #JacksonBuilding is an older building - 113, 115 &117 Bank, between Albert and Slater on east side of Bank -  that somehow survived the densification of #DowntownOttawa. For years until very recently, there was a family-run jewellery design business, @goldartjewellerystudio, where the vape shop is now. That #familybusiness is now on Bank in the Glebe. I posted the beautiful #heritagebuilding next door on #DowntownBank in February. This building is older (I suspect from the #1880s, like #SlinnsBlock just south on #DowntownBank), but as the second photo makes clear it needs a lot of love to attain its former glory. Urbsite discusses the neighbourhood briefly, more focused on nearby buildings: "There were still single family houses on this block of Bank Street in the first decade of the twentieth century." http://urbsite.blogspot.ca/2012/09/bank-and-slater-streets.html

On the ground floor of the #JacksonBuilding is another Ottawa family business which has been on #DowntownBank for over half a century - Comerford's Cigar Store. Given the history of the building itself, it's impossible for this #familybusiness to have always been at this exact location, but it has been on #BankStreet for almost 70 years now! What makes a building a #landmark is as often the people in it as the concrete, glass and brick. In the last photo, you can also see the next building south down Bank, which I posted in March.

"Long Description:
In 1948, Michael Comeford took over Dalton E Kehoe cigars and tobacco operating at 118 Bank Street. According to the 1949 Ottawa city directory material, there were 45 other cigar shops in downtown Ottawa. Today there are about a dozen shops.
"Mike Comerford died in 1990, one month after retirement. Mike's only child Rolly Paul Comerford ran the business until 2007 and his own semi-retirement when Rolly's daughters Ann and Lucie took over. In addition to tobacco products, Comeford's smoke shop sells magazines, newspapers and lots of snacks."

This is what the #JacksonBuilding looked like before the explosion and its subsequent complete makeover as a semi-#brutalist office building. The view is looking northwestward from a building on Slater looking toward Bank. You may notice that the building has lost some height (and a floor) along the way... It was first built in 1921, and the massive renovations were completed (after years) in 1969. The Emporis listing for this building estimated its height at 34m; the entry gives no hint of the drama behind its dramatic transformation. There are many accounts of the explosion, including one from the @CityOfOttawa:
"By October 29 [1958], all streets except Slater were deemed safe for businesses and pedestrians. The following day demolition began on the Odeon Theatre, Jackson Building, and the Addressograph Multigraph building, allowing investigators to examine the center of the blast. Prince Phillip arrived in Ottawa on October 31 to view the explosion site and question officials. Overall, the entire incident cost the government two million dollars in damages."

The #JacksonBuilding on #DowntownBank at #SlaterStreet is another #Ottawa office building which is much older than it appears. In this case, the massive renovations were forced on the building after a massive explosion across Slater did serious damage to it's outer walls.
🏢💥
"The Jackson Building, at 122 Bank Street, may not look like much, but its understated exterior belies its rich history. Fame, chaos, and controversy are all quietly tucked into the #brick walls of these government offices. [...]
"The Bank and Slater site made its way into the hands of lumber and railway baron J.R. Booth. Booth was erecting three buildings, starting with the Booth building near Sparks and O'Connor in 1910-11, the Transportation building at 10 Rideau in 1916-17, and finally the Jackson building in 1919-21. All three were designed, at least in part, by Ottawa architect #JohnAlbertEwart, whose portfolio includes many prominent Ottawa buildings. "Booth named his 150,000 square foot ref building was named after his son, Jackson, who was also the Chair of the Ottawa Improvement Commission. "In its early days, the building was much more ornate than it is today. ...
"... Much like the 1928 Victoria Building (also designed by Ewart), its architecture was a melange or Elizabethan/Tudor and Jacobean Revival sometimes called 'Jacobethan', with an alternating stone and brick banding called 'streaky bacon'.
[...]
"In 1940, the Jackson Building was acquired by the Government of Canada…"

Then, on 25 October 1958, 8 am on a Saturday morning, there was a massive explosion in the basement of 248 Slater, across the street. The blast was heard over much of Ottawa and several buildings were destroyed -- but by some miracle, only one person died. The Jackson Building just barely survived, and needed serious work to make it usable again. Those repairs ultimately took over a decade, in part because of inaccurate assumptions about the history of how the building was first constructed. What emerged was a late #1960s office built around a #1920s shell. 💥🏢

It also give you another look at #BankStreetChambers on the right, and a hint of its neighbour to the south on #BankStreet, the #JacksonBuilding, another building with a colourful history which is much older than it looks... 🏢
Completed in 1986, 250 Albert is 47.6m tall with 14 floors above ground at 4 below. Although built after building heights limits were raised, the building followed the practice of rather short #officebuildings in Ottawa -- while taller than many on #DowntownBank, it is shorter than #99Bank, which is kitty corner to it across Bank and #AlbertStreet.

The #AlbertBankBuilding is at, yes, #AlbertStreet at #BankStreet, with a street address of 250 Albert. Built in 1986 (just two years before its neighbour across Albert, the #BankStreetChambers here on the far right, was being reclad), it was originally called the #IDRCbuilding, but apparently #IDRC moved out years ago. The building has a good mix of tenants, some government some commercial. It was part of a late #1980s trend to escape the dominance of all-glass buildings west and east of #DowntownBank, a street which somehow escaped the worst excesses of the 1960s and 1970s.  It is a #BOMAbest building according to the Ottawa / Gatineau Commercial Space Directory 2012 (see https://issuu.com/greatrivermedia/docs/boma_2012/31 ). For years, one of my favourite sports stores was located on the ground floor here on Bank...

Across #BankStreet from #222Queen and the #BankStreetChambers buildings is 99 Bank St; both those buildings can be seen in reflection here. #99Bank is the west end of what is now called the #SunLifeBuilding on #DowntownBank. This building used to be called the #MetropolitanLifeBuilding theme the #ClaricaBuilding. Neither name is unique to Ottawa, and the change from generic-ish name to another has only served to make it that much more anonymous.

As I mentioned when I looked at the #OConnorStreet end of this building in June, it is 51.00 m high with 15 floors above ground. It was finished in 1978, renovated in 1995 and again in 2016-2017 - changing the entrance by adding this black rectangular arch and removing some other details.

How much can a building change before it stops being the "same" building? This building next to #222Queen on #DowntownBank at #AlbertStreet is 102 Bank, now called the #BankStreetChambers. It is much older than it looks, and looks almost nothing like how its original architect, #EdgarHorwood, first designed it. It's even older than people old enough to remember the building's massive 1988 refacing - when it was given its current outer shell - may realize. It began life in #1900,  then also called the Bank Street Chambers (before a renaming which was later reversed in the #1980s), and was first renovated in the #1950s. As the name "Chambers" suggests, it was built to serve as lawyers' offices, being a very short walk to the Supreme Court of Canada then at Bank and Wellington St. It still is home to a noted law firm, but now, over a century later, it also has offices of several companies. The architect of the original building also designed two #BankStreet landmarks, what is now called #SomersetHouse at #SomersetWest, and the #GilmourHotel at #GilmourStreet, which was destroyed by fire in the early #20thCentury (I posted photos of it in March when discussing 365-369 Bank, #AzizAndCompany's building, which is kitty corner to where the Gilmour Hotel was located). Urbsite has more details, and shares an oft-reposted image of Horwood's three Bank Street buildings:
🏢🏛
"The Bank Street Chambers… was designed by Edgar L. Horwood. In addition to the rounded tower the building had elaborate terra cotta and stone trimmings.
"The building was modernized in 1950s and re-named the Bankal Building, and reclad again in the 1980s when it was re-renamed the Bank Street Chambers. This red granite column on a red sandstone foilate base is all that's left of Horwood's design."

"The building was modernized in 1950s and re-named the Bankal Building, and reclad again in the 1980s when it was re-renamed the Bank Street Chambers. This red granite column on a red sandstone foilate base is all that's left of Horwood's design." https://urbsite.blogspot.ca/2010/12/then-albert-at-kent.html 🏢🏛 #Ottawa  #ottawaarchitecture  #613history  #CentretownOttawa  #DowntownOttawa  #igersOttawa  #instaOttawa  #myOttawa  #LoveOttawa  #heritagebuilding  #preservation  #restoration

The first photo here looks west down #QueenStreet from #DowntownBank, with #222Queen on the left and #240Sparks on the right. You can also see 230 Queen attached to the #CapitolSquareBuilding -- this was until August 1999 the home of the Capitol Square 3 #movietheater, once the Ottawa flagship for the Famous Players chain. West down Queen you can see the #PlacedeVille complex, including Ottawa's tallest office tower and the #MarriottOttawa. The second photo is a look at the top floors of 222 Queen at the corner of #BankStreet, while the last looks closer at the main entrance on Queen. Designed by Ala-Kantti, it's unmistakably a #1970s Building.

"Built on the site of the magnificent Capitol Theatre, the Capitol Square 3 opened on June 1, 1972 with “Cabaret”, “The Rowdyman” and Charles Chaplin’s “Modern Times”. and closed in 1999. It was operated by Famous Players. It was closed suddenly on August 12, 1999."
