The Piano Towns development, on the southeast corner of Dupont and Westmoreland, is nearing completion, units selling at more than $C 1 million each.

I photographed the site in 2011, just another empty lot left after a 2009 fire.

[PHOTO] Looking up Westmoreland Avenue towards Dupont, April 2012

This April 2012 picture looking up to the intersection of Westmoreland Avenue with Dupont Street, taken at twilight, shows from a different angle the lot at the corner of two streets I had photographed last year. Commenters at my blog (and later, at Flickr) pointed out that the lot once hosted a building housing artists’ studios that had burned down in a fire. The lot remains empty.
