    And 80 Perth Av--corner. This is the site of a funky old (RR?) house that was sadly torn down about a year ago. It may be by the same developer as those Lansdowne & Davenport lofts as sandwich boards from that development surround the site.

    Haven't seen a thread yet on UT, even though this application is 4.5 months old....

    God I hope it's decent architecture here! A red brick aA building would do wonders here.

    So far, that area has seen terrible architecture in new development. BeBloor is the notorious example.

    What old house? All I remember is a horrible Budget truck rental that looked like a Nairobi shantytown.

    ^Yeah that was it. There was an old house (station guard?) or structure on the corner that was kind of cool. Sure, it was rundown, but a nice fixer upper.

    This area is picking up--on the SE corner of Bloor and Perth, a new vintage clothing store has just opened, "Nest," in the house on the corner. Across the street, a new bar is about to open.

    It was last used as a U-Haul rental lot. Here are some photos from just before demo. Sadly, I didn't actually take any photos from the Bloor side:

    And here's what it looked like in 1923:

    That's the nicest-looking photo of this site that I've ever seen. :)

    It was cute, but hardly worth saving I think...

    Let's hope for better architecture than what they have for Fuse Condos. Something like North Drive's 1990 Bloor would work well here.

    I wonder if we'll see a redevelopment of the Value Village (couple blocks east) someday?

    Well this has (rightfully) fallen off everyone's radar but they seem to have built a rental office or sales centre on site. Not sure if the disappointing pile below is what's still planned but...

    I think "disappointing pile" is far too generous a descriptor...

    Wow, landscaping between building and sidewalk, at street level, on Bloor. Welcome to Mississauga.
