National Typewriter Building
Portage Avenue. Looks like the National Typewriter Building will be demolished. And soon. Is it a loss for Portage Avenue? Aesthetically I’d have to say yes. But it’s an abandoned building that’s reportedly in a state of disrepair. Renderings for the condo tower that will replace the building look great, and there’s no denying that an occupied residential building is an infinitely better use for this land than an abandoned commercial building.
But will this be a case of bait and switch? One Man Committee asks this question, and there’s a good chance he may be on to something….
