Proposed Jewish Community Centre – 1955

From the Windsor Daily Star – April 27, 1955:

    This architect’s conception of the proposed new Windsor Jewish Community Centre shows a building of ultra-modern design. The building will be located between Ouellette and Pelissier near Jackson Park, if city council gives final approval to plans of the local Jewish Community Council. Homeowners in the vicinity of the proposed site will be petitioned to see weather they have any objections. City council’s public works committee last night approved the plan in principal but deferred its decision on the zoning amendments until neighbouring residents have had their say. Fund for the $300,000 structure were raised in a campaign last year. Community Centre representatives explained the building was attractive from all angles.

Does anyone remember if this was built? The Community Centre is on Ouellette, but looks more 1970’s. Was this built and demolished?
