This building which is found on Spadina Ave just north of College St was built in 1900 as part of City Dairy which was owned by the Massey family. It was taken over by the University of Toronto (U of T) many years ago and is now called the North Borden building and houses various offices and centres of the university. It looks like it hasn't received a lot of TLC through the years and you can see where the two right-hand arches of the front porch have been filled in at some point. The columns on the building are wonderful and I will show you a close-up of some of the carving on them tomorrow. Hopefully this building will get some work done on it now that the new Architecture building has been completed across the road from it. I'll show it next week.
