1388 Queen Street West is on sale. We are all wondering what is under the siding and how to deal with it.

The pictures below show how this building looked  when built and now. On the left the original has a high decorative parapet, 3 rectangular windows on the third floor and one arched window on the second floor.  On the right, the same building is covered with brown siding.  The windows on the second floor are far apart, so the original arch may have been demolished. One could probably remove the siding and restore or rebuild the facade. Reproduction vintage bricks may be available locally. The second picture is a front view of 1388 in brown siding. The last picture shows a building on Mount Pleasant, South of Eglinton. The architect designed  a Victorian style arched window and a simple parapet.  The building is dated 1991, proving it can be done!
A tasteful restoration would greatly increase the value of this property located in an area that is ripe for growth. It is for sale now. Open the pictures below. Use the “i” symbol under the pictures to display important comments.
