Who is Adam The Woo – A Documentary – more Junction than you think

 

 

This post is about places. Adam the Woo is an urban adventurer who documents his visits disused and abandoned places on a YouTube channel. His efforts to communicate the importance of places in communities and visitations to various disused industrial buildings all have a real connection to the Greater Junction Area. Our area has some very hard-core urban explorers. Some simply visiting out of interest, while others seek the history and value to our community from their visits. We also have so many places and things that need to explored and documented.

Adams commitment to produce videos of so many places – even Toronto – is great and his methods are simply wonderful.

Below is a documentary by Kenny Johnson with Adam the Woo which provides a glimpse into a staggering body of work.

1st new homes on Vine Ave in decades nearing completion

looking rather nice eh!

New homes on Vine Ave provide quite a view change

 

 

The news houses at 63 and 67 Vine Ave – now being bricked are already changing the build environment of the avenue, not just by there replacing lots fro years neglected by a far away owner, but also also in the design decision to not build the houses with pecked roofs.

People were removed the furniture, and just plain junk that is in one of houses on this now development site. Yet why not place all this directly in the dumpster?

61, 63 and 67 Vine were sold recently and reader SP has just sent in this update with information on what currently in the works for the site and his opinion of the state of affairs that will occur with this change.

Post submitted by SP.

The row of shanty houses on Vine that were recently sold.  The two leaning houses and the one that was on fire last year have all been boarded up and some men who were cleaning up the
property recently said that the structures would be torn down and 6 townhomes going up in their place.  That only leaves 2 shanty houses to go.  The residents of Vine are happy to welcome this change to what has been an eyesore for many years now.  Our street will look nicer and the riff raff that hung out in these abandoned houses will hopefully be replaced by families both young and old.  Sadly the brick house could not be saved but there are a lot of other structures in the area that have been restored in recent months and I hope that is enough to please the naysayers of development.

61, 63 and 67 Vine were sold on June 12th at 100 percent of list price 2 readers have reported

61, 63 and 67 Vine were sold on June 12th at 100 percent of list price which is $800,000 total, this has been reported by two readers John U. and the another who has told the blog to refer to him as a reader a while ago.

As a recap for people who may not know, these three houses were much abused for many years (decades) by the owners, which greatly affected the avenue and the community. Many people were very happy to see them go up for sale, and a lot of people want to see new houses built on the site.

Yet there may be the loss of 67 a wonderful built home of a particular character  that exhibits a great deal of the historical fabric, which appeared on so few houses in the Junction – two examples on this house the slate roof and the detailed eves  which have more ornamentation than most houses in the Junction.

It is probably safe? to say that a series of new house will be built on the site,  which will be good for the avenue, in that they will bring more people to  live in the area, and will provide a fresh atmosphere. Or there could even be live/work units built.
