Many of our recent Throwback Thursday articles have focused on dramatic changes in density and height, but it is smaller infill projects that have had the biggest impact on our city streets. In today's Throwback Thursday, we take a look at a historic building on King Street East and its new addition. Turning back the clock to 2001, a narrow four-storey historic structure at the southwest corner of King and Berkeley was in the process of being expanded with a modern addition.
Fast forward to the present, and the new context-sensitive addition now extends the building's street frontages to the west and south.
Looking at the site from the west back in 2004, a windowless brick wall faces out over a surface parking lot.
The same view in 2014 shows the new addition's western wall, which now features windows facing out towards the Globe and Mail Centre construction site.
We will return next week with another look at the changing face of Toronto!
