If you’ve had a chat with me in the last year or so, there is a good chance that I found occasion to slip something about apartments, Centretown, or both into the conversation. It should come as no surprise that during the Depression, construction of all sorts ground to a virtual halt.┬áIf you were take a look around the neighbourhood during those years, it would appear that someone forgot to let a small group of developers know that the party was over.
