The renovated Sun Tower dome was recently unveiled. The copper roof of the dome adorning the building at 128 West Pender Street will take a few years to oxidize and turn to a more familiar green colour. The restoration work at the Sun Tower is still underway but it is clearly in the final stages. We’ve documented the current state of this landmark building in the slides below, with some links for further reading.
