The folks behind the revival of the apartment building at 48 Weber St W are going to renovate the houses at 61 and 65 Roy St (just behind the apartment) as mixed office/apartment space.

Mercato restaurant at King and Scott has closed and the former Artisan Zone storefront beside the Berlin has been completely redone, including the removal of the old Kabel's tile.

That's a pretty short run for Mercato, under 4 months I think. I wonder if it was a decision to cut their losses, or if they went into the business without nearly enough capital.

I only went in once, shortly after they opened, and left with the idea that they didn't really know what they were doing.

Is that because they've built out from the original storefront, or is it just heritage vandalism?  I can't think of a good reason to remove it.

Yes, they are moving the entrace right up to the front wall. The terrazzo and display cases are going away and a new flush front wall is going in.

Very sad - that was, without any doubt, the best old storefront in the Downtown. Is the main floor to be converted to office space or is the current arrangement temporary?

Not sure what is going on at Highland and Spadina.
Storage of construction vehicles from the big road reconstruction in the St Mary's hospital neighbourhood?
Soil remediation?
New project?
   


A metal construction fence has been added to the perimeter of the site now. Nothing showing in the permit database though.
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.

Crews working weekends to renovate the Schreiter Sandrock funeral home into an Urgent Care clinic.  Using tiles for exterior cladding, which looks pretty good.  Front porch is being rebuilt, but some of the wood posts are in pretty rough shape.
