We have a previous thread on the CC Snowdon building that can be accessed here for more information on this project: http://calgaryheritage.org/phpbb/viewto ... wdon#p2319

I am going to lock the previous thread and we'll continue the CC Snowdon news here, where the cool pictures are :wink:

Designation of the CC Snowdon building is being pursued by current building owner, Neil Richardson:

“Everybody loves Stephen Avenue and looks at that as our heritage. Obviously the banks and the high-end retail were important buildings at the time. They are pretty buildings,” Richardson said. “But a lot of these industrial buildings weren’t the most ornate structures, or the most cherished. But they are certainly a part of our past. When people think oil refinery, they don’t think of a brick building with a decorative arch.”
