Windsor

759 Mill Street

So I took a drive through the Indian Road ghetto the other day. What a mess the city has created over there… But that’s another set of posts….

Indian Road is now almost all boarded up along the east side of the road, from University to Mill…. When I got to Mill and turned the corner, I was shocked to see this big apartment building at 759 Mill all boarded up.

I know the bridge company has been buying up huge swaths of Sandwich, but why? What’s so interesting about this building and the others on Felix and Rosedale that are all boarded up too? Hummm….

In case you aren’t familiar with the area, the building is here, just north of the old Forester Football field and track (is it still in use?).

The “map my city” feature of the City of Windsor shows the owner of 759 Mill as:

DANBURY PROPERTY
5795 TECUMSEH RD E
WINDSOR ON N8T 1E1

Anyone know anything about Danbury? Are they related to the Bridge Co?
