Leslieville / Studio District

Couldn’t find a separate thread for Eastern Avenue so am using this one. Just want to say how much I love these old city owned buildings on Eastern Avenue. They would make amazing theatre spaces or cultural centres for the developing neighbourhood around them.

Sorry no pic but I noticed that Kotn is renovating a storefront on Queen East. Forget where and it isn’t on their website.
 
The storage building on the northwest side of Eastern adjacent to the rail overpass has closed down and the lot to northeast is now fenced off. Don’t know what it is for but would guess that it has something to do with the Ontario line.

Normally I would object to the shift away from retail; but here, the ground-floor space has never been retail as such, so far as I can recall.
