This week's Throwback Thursday captures the before and after of a mid-rise condominium development on Queen Street East at Logan Avenue in Toronto's Leslieville neighbourhood. Back in December 2016, demolition of a two-storey building on the southwest corner of Queen and Logan was underway, as was also the case at Woodgreen Church to the west.

Jumping ahead to February 2019, and the 7-storey, OFFICEArchitecture-designed 875 Queen East by Harhay Developments was structurally complete and partially enclosed by cladding. The building will soon add 122 condominium units plus new ground floor retail to the area, as well as a new home for the Red Door Family Shelter, a community organization that provides emergency housing for low-income families, formerly housed in the Woodgreen Church.
