Baron Sports is closing in Griffintown
That the original Baron Sports is closing down in Griffintown is less interesting than pondering what will happen to the distinctive building it occupies. I’m struck again by the ugliness of the ground floor now. Coolopolis had a then and now entry on the building two years ago, showing that it once had much bigger, nicer windows and more store frontage – back when that area clearly had some kind of street life. It would be great if a new owner could restore that look. Photo clip from Google Streetview.
Later note: Coolopolis looked at this building twice. Here’s another then and now comparison giving a better idea how the building used to be part of a neighbourhood.
