wolf at the wall

it is always jarring to walk by a solidly bricked up façade of a seemingly still usable building...
what is it shielding behind such a finite barricade?
how long has it been this way and for how much longer?
does the wolf still come huffing and puffing to blow the house down??
and what of this curious altar-like niche so perfectly placed to break up the brick pattern and perhaps even endow it with an art installation status?

Perhaps the building is soon to be pulled down. Is that a true niche, or is it just a trompe l'oeil?
