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....

Proposal for site plan approval for the lands at 1439 Bloor W and 80 Perth St for 12 storey mixed use building with retail at grade - 2 stories below grade parking - 120 parking spaces .

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

^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.

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

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:

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...

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