The three row houses to the left (1862) were originally part of a Georgian eight-house row. The Second Empire features – mansard roofs and bowed bays – were added about 20 years later. The double house to the right (1874) is an example of Italiante architecture with round-headed windows and doors and bracketed cornices.

Note the green roof of the Toronto Dominion Centre banking pavilion to the right.
The Canary District (and former PAN AM Athlete’s Village) is named after the diner. This is the oldest multi-room school house in Toronto.
This is a 6-storey masonry warehouse building that was used to store barrels of alcohol. Designed by David Roberts Jr and constructed between 1842-1851, it was built where the residence of James Gooderham Worts once stood. Archaeological evidence of this residence may survive underneath the building. Thanks goes to a Heritage Impact Assessment report by ERA Architects for the above information.

This Garden Court Apartment complex has 10 buildings beautifully arranged around an interior court. It is one of the nicest places in Toronto and will be featured on this Saturdays Urban Exploration Walk.
There is a development proposal sign in front but a more recent city report recommends refusing the proposal and corresponding zoning plan amendment. The proposal called for the demolition of the complex to make way for, you guessed it, more condominiums.
