I'm staring at that side of the building right now and this is not true. There's a bit of exposed brick that was behind the Schreiter's sign, but that's been there since Schrieter's moved out and took their sign with them

My mistake then, I seen some exposed brick and just assumed it was in the process of being removed.

The windows look pretty good. Much work going on inside. No indication of what will happen with the exterior finish.

Exterior finish? it was recently re-painted white, so it will be white.

Hopefully nothing... it looks great!

Even the part behind the old signage that had exposed brick has been repainted white.

OK, that's a good indication that white it will be.

It does look good. Although I think a lot of people (I'm one of them) are curious what' under, and if it would look better.

It is a light-coloured brick. I would personally prefer that but I think removing all the white paint would be a fairly expensive and time-consuming project.

I would too. But I've been told by people not from around here that we "REALLY" love our brick here.

The uncovered portion of brick (that has since been painted over, originally covered with the Schreiters sign) looked pretty gaudy in my opinion. If it matched the brick of the current Thalmic offices more I'd be all for it, but this brick looked pretty patchwork with a heavy colour variance. Kinda vomit-coloured, and some of it was sooty vomit-coloured, to paint a vivd picture of it Smile

People from here don't need to say it - they know we're all about the brick!  Smile
