Railpath Conversion


As we head further down the railpath passing various industrial sites we pass this conversion of an old postage stamp glue factory which was built in 1929 and turned into lofts several years ago. This part shows the old garages from the factory which have been divided into 5 lofts - these are 'real' lofts with exposed brick, 18' ceilings and roof decks! As you can see on the left side of the path, the city has planted trees all along it so eventually this going to be a wonderfully shady place to walk or run!

I think I see people having a run right now!

Now this is a path I would want to live in close proximity.

I'm going to enjoy this walk. I had never thought there might exist a factory that made glue for postage stamps!

Someone has a wonderful roof/patio to take advantage of this great new path.

Postage glue goodness I'd never considered a factory for this.

I wouldn't mind something like this running along the back of my place!

Wow, these lofts with roof decks are amazing!!!
If I lived in Toronto, I'm sure I'd love to go for a walk (and take some shots) in this railpath. ;-)

If I lived in Toronto, I'd like to live in one of those lofts to watch all those energetic people walking, running, cycling — but I guess I'd have to cut a hole through the trees.

This is a much nicer railpath than I'd originally imagined!

I would nave never thought there would be a a factory that made glue for stamps; I'm happy they converted it. I think lofts like this have tons of character.

It's so fantastic that they are making good use out of these old buildings instead of leaving them derelict, looks like a very nice area Red, bet one of those loft conversions would coast a fortune!

I enlarged the photo, the buildings look really cool.
