This 3 storey building at 2989 Dundas (co Pacific) has begun a major transformation. According to the building application the 2nd and 3rd floors will be rebuilt with a new raised roof. The existing 4 apartments will be converted into one large living space.
As the Junction is redeveloped numerous buildings will be transformed through major renovations like this one. Changes are inevitable but I hope more developers make the effort and financial commitment to maintain the original facade and character of our high street.
It appears this developer will be keeping the face of the building but the next one might not be so accommodating.
In an effort to preserve the Junction the JRA will be kicking off a Junction Preservation Committee to review our options for historic preservation. The JRA will have more details at our next meeting on September 17 2009.
