Wish for 43 Junction Rd

Condos, light industrial, or retail

Would it not be great to see the old flour mill site added to in a similar way as this set of silos in Finland.

Yes, that whole site is very historic as the location of the impressive Campbell Flour Mills (later Maple Leaf Mills), one of the key industries in the development of The Junction in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Most of it has been demolished, but if we could preserve and reuse the landmark concrete grain elevator and warehouse, it would go a long way towards commemorating the mills and the man behind it (Archibald Campbell) who did so much to develop The Junction into a vibrant community.
