Four decades later, Strathcona is hot property. The house up top is an old building, partly renovated. The house below, however, has just been built. A bunch of workers were just putting the finishing touches on it when Karina and I walked by snapping pictures. Nowadays, instead of referring to these buildings as examples of "urban blight" and planning to have them knocked down, developers are building new houses that mimic the old structures. "Blight" in the sixties equals "character" in the 21st century.
