  • Dead rail lines, lost streets, and more Toronto oddities - Spacing Toronto
    buses in the 1950s Eventually the temporary measure became permanent and now the remaining Church tracks south of Carlton are only used during diversions or short turns When the tarmac softens under the hot summer sun the buried Church rails sometimes warp and break the surface proof that no transit line in Toronto is ever truly dead TTC tracks poke through the road surface at Church and Wellesley Evidence of other defunct streetcar lines is even more subtle than ghost rails Walk or Google Street View down Pape from the Danforth turn west on Riverdale Ave then south down Carlaw and take note of how many former store fronts have been turned into living rooms Part of the reason for this was the cessation of the Harbord streetcar in 1966 The Harbord service used to snake from Davenport and Lansdowne through the core via Spadina and Dundas to a loop just north of present day Pape station In the east end it travelled along Carlaw Riverdale and Pape When the Harbord line got the chop in the years after the opening of the Bloor Danforth line many of the stores closed and became extensions of the apartments above The Eastern Ave bridge in 1965 shortly after its eastern exit became blocked by the Don Valley Parkway My absolute favourite piece of disused Toronto infrastructure however is the Eastern Ave bridge over the Don River Built in the 1930s the metal truss used to carry vehicular traffic until the 1960s when the Don Valley Parkway cut off its eastern connection In the 1990s when the West Don Lands was cleared to make way for ill fated Ataratiri neighbourhood the bridge lost its western connection and became completely marooned Today it s only accessible from the Don Valley recreation trail through a hole cut in a chain link fence On one end roaring traffic On the other the whir of bicycles and thump of occasional joggers The city has found a way to move around the bridge without ever touching it Like this More Toronto quirks and curiosities here Subscribe to Mag Share Post Tweet Post Buy Merch andise Related Posts Forgotten TTC architecture a reminder of nixed transit plans Happy birthday to the Toronto streetcar system Welcome to your private nuclear fallout shelter 5 subtle signs of lost rivers in Toronto Tweet More posts by Chris Bateman 10 comments Neither the author nor Spacing necessarily agrees with posted comments Spacing reserves the right to edit or delete comments entirely See our Comment Policy Mg 3 months ago Probably a bunch of similar abandonments in the suburbs The abandoned on ramp at York Mills Road and the DVP comes to mind https www google ca maps place York Mills Rd 26 Don Valley Pkwy North York ON M3A 43 7586317 79 3359956 481m data 3m1 1e3 4m2 3m1 1s0x89d4d27d6ebf741f 0xf3f1fb357bd08296 hl en Raymond 3 months ago Great article FYI the Church Streetcar line wasn t shut to save power in the 1950s

  • Overhaul or demolish 24 Sussex? - Spacing National
    all picturesque eclectic features Windows were replaced the fenestration inflexibly regularized dormers added the entrance adjusted and simplified and a federal crest added above the doorway It could be argued that the resultant building design is serviceable but unexceptional In considering the design aspects of a renovation scope of work there is an opportunity to work with what is significant about the house with a mind to incorporating what is interesting altering it to create a strong architecture that serves the purpose needed Guillaume Éthier s doctoral thesis L ico ne autopoi e tique l architecture de la renaissance culturelle a Toronto 1999 2010 evaluated architecture s ability to represent and change a culture setting up a framework by which to evaluate 10 buildings recently built Toronto s cultural sector Éthier examines how these buildings challenged and disrupted l identite Torontoise that had emerged out of Toronto s history and by doing so were able to strengthen civic culture His evaluation of such buildings as the AGO the Royal Conservatory and the ROM considered their effectiveness with less emphasis on their functionality and more placed on measuring their iconic value and evaluating whether they accomplished the task of transforming cultural identity in the city of Toronto He quotes Christopher Hume that thesis buildings stand out and make a virtue of belonging to a place and shows that the great success of these buildings as a group resulted from the fact that they drew their energy from the context in which they were implanted and in turn repositioned cultural confidence of Toronto Undoubtedly this investment of public and private money has created a transformation that has bettered the city s economy as well as its sense of confidence in promoting its own value on an international stage Similarly while its material built form is rooted in the founding identity of Canada s national capital 24 Sussex could be adapted perhaps dramatically to convey reinforce and transform Canadian culture through its architecture both publically on the ceremonial route and internally as a stage from which to undertake intimate state events and better function as a tool to promote and build the nation internationally Its role in Canada needs to function as comfortable residence for the Prime Minister and their family while also providing a face to the nation for events hosted there by the head of government and occupying a prominent site on this nation s ceremonial route It should be part of the ongoing project to construct a capital representative of Canada a pluralistic diverse northern country emergent from three founding peoples Writers like Joseph Boyden Thomas King and John Ralston Saul have been clarifying the ways that Canada s identity has been assembled from aboriginal customs melded with those of immigrants from our ways of managing government to our self deprecating senses of humour This decade we as a nation are coming to grips with the past reality and future opportunity evidenced in the Truth and Reconciliation Report along with a significant correction of the unsustainable way of living that has produced climate change The problematic colonialism embodied in this house built in a Gothic style to house a lumber baron family who made their fortune clearing the land of its trees then becoming a federal politician represents the founding of this nation and is very much Canada s history In this project it would be appropriate that we consider ways of respecting the traditional territory of the Algonquin Nation that we make changes to make the building sustainable respond effectively to the sublime site and incorporate what is useful and beautiful from the existing residence into a transformed site It also needs to function as the home of the first family In fact we have recent examples of buildings such as this Shim Sutcliffe Integral House beautifully synthesized the desired goal of the mathematician and impresario client to build a home of an undulating architectural form emergent from musical harmonies that could also be used as a public concert hall for 150 guests while simultaneously working as a comfortable home for one Its relationship with the landscape could be invigorated through alteration and changes in its relationship to the site Patkau s Tula House on Quadra Island and MacKay Lyons Sweetapple s Cliff house in Nova Scotia set up sublime relationships with the landscape disassociated from nationalist architectures Many recent award winning projects have integrated historic buildings into new designs Chevalier Morales Architectes transformed an 1845 Gothic Revival Church in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Quebec city into the Maison de la Littérature with the addition of a crystalline box adjacent to the historic building KPMB s work at the Rotman School of Business and Royal Conservatory integrated historic buildings into larger new structures with a strong contemporary language Shim Sutcliffe s Sisters of St Joseph built upon their Integral House project with an organic response to a ravine site enveloping a historic mansion into the scheme GH3 s Street House on Mackenzie surgically edited away from the historic building in Rosedale replacing those parts with a contemporary language that respects its context while emerging as a refreshed and transformed space of beauty Precedent also exists for the referencing of previously existing elements in contemporary language in adaptive reuse of heritage buildings The KPMB led team s work at the Museum of Nature responded to the lost tower by designing a lantern that references the structure that had been lost and overhauling the building to better function The result is a synthesis of the original building with a contemporary architecture in a completely overhauled stone building There are options Overhaul not demolish It is time for an overhaul of 24 Sussex but not complete demolition There is an inherent irony in the suggestion that in order to be a model of sustainability one must demolish and replace a large well built stone structure with all of its embodied energy taxing any future gains with a starting position far
