Horrendous building with little or no human scale or charm. What is most upsetting about this building which occupies an entire block is that the previous Post Office building was a fine brick and stone edifice on nearby Portage Avenue. The internal public office is now a shadow of its former self, being a fraction of the size from when completed, and missing all of its modernist detailing. Most of the building which houses a sorting and delivery office has now been refaced and is about to become the main police station for Winnipeg.
