The Handyman Shop is sold!
This great looking building located on the corner of Dundas and Quebec is a favourite for many people in the Junction. Finally after a long development fight and sale hopefully we’ll see it restored, conscientiously renovated and reopened.
No word yet on the developer’s plans but the OMB approved a handful of minor variances to the property in late 2006.
Excerpt from the OBM document: http://www.omb.gov.on.ca/e-decisions/pl060706_%233395.pdf
The applicants propose to renovate the existing building to include two commercial uses and two parking spaces on the ground floor and four two-storey apartments on the second and third floors, with third floor recessed balconies along Quebec
If this plan is still the plan I think the addition of a second retail outlet will fit nicely with Wise Daughters Craft Market and Crema. The apartments will add a third floor which will presumably look similar to the Medland Lofts.
