They are simply confused. I always wanted to buy Fields and turn it into a house by itself. Interesting to see what they build there.

It has a whole new look!

Methinks many people can't imagine that the Adelphi and all of that other glorious stuff was knocked down (because, you know, Victoria is/was all about preserving heritage).

Plans are underway to redevelop 1125 Fort Street.  Details:

  • The existing house would be moved forward within the property and would receive a heritage designation
  • Concurrently, the house would be divided into two strata units (one for the basement and a 2-storey unit for the rest of the property)
  • 3 additional strata units would be built at the rear, bringing the total number of units to five
  • The development will include an elevator, a rooftop garden (on top of the new structure), and four parking stalls accessed from Meares St.

In Victoria a tiny 1920s building like this one in Windsor would be knocked down without a second thought. You'd get laughed at for suggesting it was worth spending any money to save it, let alone close to $6 million*. But in Ontario it's heritage.

 

Pic of how it looked before renovation...

 

Just imagine what could have been done with the Fairfield church (restoration/renovation of the old building + new construction next door to make it feasible).

 

Windsor, Ontario Sandwich Fire Hall/Public Library project...

 

*SSP forumer says only $2.5 million, but news articles quote a higher number and say it went $3 million over budget.

I'd take the appointment on the condition they let me decide the fate of the Northern Junk site.
