- Photo of the Wrigley building being built in Toronto in 1915. This building is now a condo buildings and boasts:
"Wrigley Lofts - 245 Carlaw Ave - Originally a gum factory, The Wrigley Building, a 6-strorey building, dates back to 1916. Freight elevators complement the industrial motif, and if you're lucky, a few units have a freight elevator that enters right into the loft! Naturally, the ceilings are superbly high, and property taxes and maintenance fees are incredibly low. Units have increased in value, as many have been upgraded and restored beyond what they were originally sold as. The Wrigley Building is located in the burgeoning area of Leslieville, a part of the city you'll see develop more and more as it attracts a greater number of loft-owners, who typically keep pulse with contemporary style. If you're interested in a loft for sale in Toronto and like this building." (see links at side - Lee Cornish's Toronto Real Estate Site).
This photo comes from a series of 20 photographs dated 1915. Three show the St. Marys Cement Plant while 17 show buildings and bridges (mostly in Toronto) constructed using Rogers Cement. They were in a sales package, and came to us from Ron Laidlaw.
