Today was my first bike commute to work since early December. Since one of the things that I love about biking to work is being able to track day to day changes along my route, I was curious to see several of the construction sites that I hadn’t seen for three and a half months.
A little further east is yet another church to condo conversion; this one the subject of a minor controversy. In November, they had erected most of the steel framework for an addition.
A little further along, the former site of Postal Station E. Here is the site last November.
Word is that this is going to be the new TV studios for Master Chef Canada. A big win in my books since a) it is not a zillion story condo, b) it preserves elements of the original building, and c) it will provide a source of local employment.
Last November 27, there was some excavation going on, but this lot had been dug up in the past for things like removal of the gas tanks, and also some sewer work, so I wasn’t sure that this latest activity would lead to anything.
All in all, a constant buzz of construction similar to what is happening all across the city.
