Three-year flashback:

"Hamilton's makeover master is taking on his biggest project yet -- the CIBC tower at 21 King St. W.

And that has downtown boosters beaming.

Realtor and property manager Dave Blanchard has put together a group of investors who expect to take over the 17-storey mirrored tower, the twin to 1 King St. W., Nov. 10.

The gleaming office building, more than a third vacant right now, opened in 1989, two years after the first tower. It cost $30 million then but Blanchard and associates in Office Mortgage Investments will pay $14 million, plus invest more than $700,000 in equipment. That includes upgrades to electrical, heating and cooling systems.

'This is an A building in terms of size and location, and word on the street is already sending us lots of interested parties,' he said."

Sidewalks in Toronto's financial district are made of meticulous granite pavers. They convey unshakable confidence.
