SuperAbandonment

With big projects to turn the old glen yards into the new superhospital, many new construction has sprung up around NDG. A building on Girouard and St.Jacques has already been torn down and 3 others on Sherbrooke are slated for demolition. This afternoon me and Snurferboy decided to check one of them out. Funny fact, the pawn shop that was once below this apartment was the place where I bought my first camera in the late 90′s. The city of Montreal evaluated this building pre-slating for demolition.

  1. This building no longer exist (i think). I was passing by and didn’t see it.
    Too bad, the iterior seems pretty cool!
