Behind green mesh-covered scaffolding on the corner of Victoria Avenue and Albert Street, masons have toiled on the Viterra headquarters' facade. Built in 1913 for $350,000, the building originally stood as the C.W. Sherwood Department Store, and remains the only pre-First World War structure in Regina hearkening back to those shopper roots. It also served as the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool building.

Montreal Gazette
On a stretch of Bleury St. between Ste-Catherine St. and de Maisonneuve Blvd., Quebec's biggest dance centre, Espace Danse, is steadily taking shape. Workers in hard hats scurry in and around the nine-storey Wilder Building, continuing a renovation that has gutted the 97-year-old brick-faced structure. Meanwhile, two new neighbouring concrete and glass buildings are rising apace — one abutting the Wilder's north end, the other the south — soon to sport a contemporary design appropriate to their future tenants.
