Love seeing buildings like this. Here in the US, they would tear them down unfortunately. Nice photo!!

Hmmmm. Maybe not the finest part of your city.

They should have just refurbished it to look like the older version.

What a difference, the same place and two different worlds!

I thought of Chicago's South Side when I opened your post. Interesting that half of a house can be redeveloped, with the other left standing.

Typical, they squeezed one extra floor out of the same height, the older building's apartments having higher ceilings.

A major improvement.
I'm glad it is still allowed to hang laundry outside.

The left half shouldn't have been touched.

The other day I took a shot of a building that looks like the one back in the 60's. And the strange thing is that I love the façade... :-)
