The silo lot at 43 Junction Road has gone though a clean up in the past few months. The cleanup now may be complete. Much of this cleanup has been a reuse of the lot from the disorganized use of the lot as a parking lot for other local businesses and general property wear and tear of the west side of lot – the west side of the silos. Also the general debris of years is gone, and the silos secured to ingress :-(.
West of the silos, fewer trucks are parked at the site and those which are still there as parked in a more organized layout. The east side of the silos and between the two groups, and at the back of the lot, the Go Transit West Toronto Diamond project has used the lot for about two months. They have set up a portable office and are storing earth moving machinery on the site.
All the while the St Marys Cement Co continues its operations. St Marys Cement use of the silos for a railcar offload and distribution operation is viewed by this author as great adaptive use of the built infrastructure of the Junction.
