2808 Dundas West:
omg yes, the perfect entry for this thread.
Although as per the photo, the Dundas frontage has been a bit "adulterated" from its original prismatic white brick form.
That's a *really* strange place; I think it was actually built as an urban *hotel* in the 60s, though I don't know what the client was ingesting if he really believed that Dundas & Keele would be a marketable tourist-accommodation proposition in those years (and w/o parking, yet). In any case, it soon enough became a hospice/residence and has remained so ever since.
BTW the view of it from the back alley is fascinating, in that the balconies lend a bit of a "Lorraine Motel" effect.
Avant-garde indeed, and aging extremely well. At a century plus this gem has a more contemporary feel than many a building thrown up in this town in the 21st century.
123 Edward Street:
Reminds me of a Flaktürme
This is a great thread. Thanks, @AlbertC, for starting it.
I've always been fond of these rentals near Alexander Muir park at Yonge and Lawrence
And these two buildings (actually connected at the back) across from Rosedale station really stand out
What happened with the Bellwoods plan?
