Maple Leaf Foods subsid…Canada Bread has found a new home for it’s Junction production in Hamilton. Now its appears they are setting up their old Junction building for sectionalized and demised leasing for art and design studios.

Maybe a building like 400 Dufferin Ave has been for so many years.

This makes this blog author so happy artist space is do needed so badly in the area, there was a time in the deep dark ages of the Junction in the 80’s til mid 90’s that there were good spaces for artists in the Junction. Even Keele Centre had some at great rates and a do what you want ways when the building was owned by the CPR division Marathon Realty, this author worked out of there for a long time.

Couple this with a possible condo on the on the old plant site could really enliven the area.
