I have been walking by AODBTâ€™s office for the last couple of months and I was anxiously awaiting how it would turn out. As a resident of a Saskatoon core neighborhood, I was excited to see a firm like AODBT make an investment in the community. As the exterior of the building got closer and closer to completion, I became more and more disapointed. The building does have some cool features but in the end, it seemed to be a bad fit for a historic neighborhood. Perhaps because I walk by this place every day and see how modernism can fit in perfectly in a historic neighborhood, my expectations may be a little high. While AODBTâ€™s new office has some cool elements but it doesnâ€™t really fit in with itâ€™s surroundings in Caswell Hill while at the same time doesnâ€™t really make a statement.
Maybe it will grow on me in time.
