Honouring Leslieville's Past

Brick Building with Crane

By Kathryn Hill

In this photograph from early November 2019 you can see construction work being done on the roof of the new mixed-use development at the south-west corner of Queen Street East and Logan Avenue. This is the condo and retail side and not part of the new family shelter. Bricks, unique fascias, sills, and cornices from the pharmacy building originally built circa 1888, were removed during demolition and preserved to be reused in the new development. This was an important decision by the developer that honours the past while building for the future.
