527-533 Chatham Street East

Last night driving towards downtown, I noticed that the decrepit old duplex at 527-533 Chatham Street East was kaput. Vanished into the landfill… 515-523 next door may be the next one to go… I’ve never understood how this area between downtown and Walkerville, right off the river has never “gentrified” for lack of a better word. Sadly the Casino’s presence has ensured that the surrounding blocks highest value lies in use as a parking lot. There’s a great example of poor urban planning…

I looked through all my photos and surprisingly I couldn’t find a “before” picture of this house at all. It seems like I have pictures of almost every other building on the block, but somehow not this one….

Have a good weekend everyone, we’ll see you back here Monday.
