Windsor

1650 Howard Avenue

Today home to a church or two, this buff brick beauty on Howard Ave just north of Tecumseh Rd., was built around 1938 as a Coca-Cola Bottling Plant.

The building was designed by the Toronto Architectural Firm of Chapman & Oxley. Some of their more notable works include the Princess Gate at the CNE in downtown Toronto as well as the original wing of the Royal Ontario Museum.

A neat little building and one of the ones that I think tends to get overlooked in the city. Glad a new use was found for it, so often these types of buildings have no other use, and once they close, the bulldozers move in…
