(Eaton) Lofts at 276
After so many years, nice that the residents finally have a decent-looking entrance to their condo. Shame about the generic name, but perhaps they felt "Eaton Lofts" carried too much baggage, given the building's conversion history.

Time for a thread name change too I guess!
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.

Really shocked that the Heritage Committee folks didn't get involved in preventing the name change....ya know.

Personally I do prefer "Eaton Lofts" but I imagine at some point, no one is going to remember what Eaton's was.

I'm old enough to remember Woolco, Robinson's, K-Mart, Shoprite and Consumers Distributing (good times)...but I am sure I am leaving many out that ceased existence before I was around.

Thread title is wrong: a photo earlier in the thread shows the number is 276.
