This is my latest work in progress. I expect this project to take a year or more to complete.
I've become fascinated by the Junction Triangle and the surrounding area. This is a tiny community in Toronto that is enclosed by railway tracks on all three sides, forming an inverted triangle. I've extended my roaming to one major street east of the triangle (Lansdowne Ave).
This community used to be primarily industrial, but is now gentrifying at a rapid rate.
The Nitta Gelatin Plant
The plant resides just west of Landsdowne on the far side of a large brownfield owned by the city. The plant is against the railway that defines the eastern edge of the triangle and is one of the few remaining plants operating in this area.
Unknown Abandoned Building
There is a sign on the side of this building that reads, "Muerte MMX". I'm still researching this building.
Common Homes in the Junction Triangle
The area north of Bloor was often homes for the workers of the factories south in the triangle, or in the nearby stock yards. Today, these quaint little homes are being replaced by a growing number of condo redevelopments.
New Condos on Wallace
This is a new development on the western end of Wallace by the railway and the railpath. Artists living in the diverse lofts of the area are being displaced as are the Portuguese families that lived in this community.
Corner of Lansdowne and Bloor
A rusted-out, old neon "1 hour glasses" sign stands beneath a giant and gaudy Discount Optical.
