Every once in a while we are walking down Ossington and taking pictures of some of the places undergoing change, documenting the neighbourhood so we can remember it before the new places arrive. This week we hit up a few places that have changed in the last few weeks since our last post.
Speaking of that last post, one of the places we caught last time was 109 Ossington. This week we saw further transformation from Mundial Autos into the condo sales centre with a new mural. The building has new illustrations by Ian Keltie and were painted by Toronto-based muralist William Lazos.
We thought we would post this fun poster left over from the now closed Viva Salon (where More Than Pasta is), advertising their tanning services. We know the folks at 109 will probably take this one down very soon.
At the northeast side of Ossington, there is now a full-on strip of restaurants worth archiving. Starting just below the CIBC, are Yours Truly, The Saint Tavern, Salt Wine Bar, Pizza Libretto, Alex Rei, and Fishbar. So much great food in this one short stretch!
The location north of Levack Block has been undergoing a transformation. Connecting the spots between Levack and (now closed) Paramour, this once empty space seems likely to add another retailer to the northeast corner of Ossington and Humbert.
