DSC04903

Scaffolding has appeared around the old handy man shop  located on the corner of Dundas and Quebec. As it surrounds the front facade, it may indicate a reworking of the front of the store. Two people  have told the blog that there are some architectural elements under the sign.

The handy man was operated by two gentleman for a long time in the Junction. It's 1st location ewas the building where High Park Appliances  is located now.

  1. behind the sign there are beautiful windows similar to the ones that grace the troubador. Does anyone know the intended use of the space after the renos? Starbucks?

  2. It looks like work is speeding up, several workers are on the roof doing demo work and a concrete truck was pouring into the basement yesterday. .

    No formal plans are on record with the city yet but rumor has it the building is about to go through a major rework including an additional storey.

    I hope they find a good balance between keeping the architectural features and building renewal.
