Impending Loss of 1955 Yonge Street

2018-07-06T21:15:02+00:00

As many in the Davisville and Chaplin Estates neighbourhoods will already know, a development was approved by a previous Council, in August 2010 at 1955 Yonge Street between Belsize and Millwood. Unfortunately, a property on this block (currently acting as the developer’s sales office) was not recognized as potentially having heritage value before the development was approved. City Heritage Staff has [...]

I’m very concerned about the sale of the iconic and historic Regent Theatre on Mount Pleasant. In addition to the theatre being listed on the Heritage Registry, I successfully moved a motion at Community Council to have Heritage Preservation staff evaluate its full designation which would provide it with even greater protection. However, there are still concerns that [...]

Further Council Motions Demand Stronger Heritage Protection Policies for Toronto

2018-07-06T17:50:18+00:00

Toronto has a shameful record when it comes to protecting its architectural heritage. The wanton demolition of the Bank of Montreal building at 2444 Yonge Street earlier this year and the Stollery's Building at Yonge and Bloor in January 2015, are just two of the most recent examples of the City's inability to stay ahead of [...]
