Metropolis - Just when you thought it was safe...another crane shot. This was taken on Gould Street, near Sam the Record Man on Ryerson's campus. The Metropolis Centre has been under construction for seven years, I think. The city expropriated the real estate, erected hoarding, ripped down the buildings, and then let the weeds grow for years. It will take at least another year or two to finish it. In the end, we will have retail, the Canadian Songwriter's Hall of Fame, etc. Ryerson has a deal to lease some theatres for classroom use. I should be able to take a long lunch every now and again to catch a film. The bad news is that this building obliterates the view from my office window. This photo's Flickr Page.
