Old And New
This is a pic of the new 11th Division Police Station on Davenport Ave which opened in late 2011. The 100 year old Carleton Village Public School had been made redundant and was to be torn down to allow a new police station to be built on the property, but after much resistance by the local residents, the front part of the old school was retained and restored and a new structure added on to the back of it. The architects were Stantec Architects and they have made it very environmentally friendly with a green roof, etc. I hope to tour the building in a couple of weeks during Toronto's Doors Open event but thought I had better get a pic before all the leaves come out on the many newly planted trees and block the view.
