May 2024 - Toronto ON

I wrote about this church, Bloor Street United in 2014. 

I took these photos in 2020. Built in 1886.

Last week, I am going to the Bata Shoe Museum, and saw this! Seems this started in March.

Over on the west elevation, the last few weeks of demolition have seen substantial portions of the previous building removed. What remains, pictured in the image below, is the exterior wall that represents the western edge of the church sanctuary. This wall is a significant one in the plans, as it is slated to be the buffer between the historic building and a four-storey glass-clad volume that will be built between the church and the western lot line, providing three floors of office space for the national church as well as grade level retail along the Bloor Street West frontage.
