John Wheeler

Before and After at 2505 Turtle Creek

The above photo of 2505 Turtle Creek Boulevard was sent to us by architect John Wheeler in February, when word first leaked that Toronto-based developers Great Gulf Group was looking to raze the Harwood K. Smith-designed building, constructed in 1959, and replace it with a luxury hotel-spa with affixed condos and a restaurant. The photo after the jump was taken by my 4-year-old son yesterday, shortly after the bulldozers ripped into the joint. Poor kid also brought his notepad. --Robert Wilonsky
