Another Lofty Church
This wonderful old stone church building in the Sunnyside area was built in 1910 and designed by architect William George Burns. It served as the home for several different religious denominations until the early 2000s when it was sold to developers but luckily the building had been designated as historically significant and so the exterior of the church had to be kept intact - it could be restored but not changed. The building was divided into 24 lofts all of which feature interior stone walls and wonderful old stained glass windows. One of the lofts includes several floors in the bell tower (which is 90' high) and even has a deck at the top of the tower offering incredible views of the lake and the city. Fortunately for me, that loft belongs to close friends and I have had many a good time there! An interior shot tomorrow.
