The changes seen in Toronto over the past decade have been so vast that anyone and everyone seems to be fascinated by them. One spot in particular that everyone has an opinion on is Yonge-Dundas Square and the buildings that surround it. In today's edition of Throwback Thursday, we turn back the clock on a media-covered building just east of it.
Built in 2004 as the home for an Olympics-themed entertainment venue and known as 'The Torch', 33 Dundas East was acquired by media giant Rogers in 2007 after the attraction failed to pull in enough business. The building is now used as a broadcast studio for TV stations City and OMNI. Heading back in time over a decade to April 12, 2003, construction on the building was just about to get started.
Fast forward to June 17, 2014 and the completed building is now a fixture at Victoria and Dundas Streets, known for its massive Jumbotron and media boards up top, and also the streetcar line which passes through below.
We will return next week with another look at the changing face of Toronto!
