Part of an industrial stronghold that included distilling, milling, cattle-feeding, railway interests, retail stores and more, this historic site sitting on 13 acres is one of the best preserved groups of 19th century industrial buildings in the country. Found in the Studio District of Toronto's lower East End, this complex includes a brick-paved street, flanked by larger and more elaborate brick and stone buildings, plus single-storey simple rack and tank warehouses. The area is being redeveloped into high class artists' lofts and gallery space - consult the website for latest events.
