Bathurst Apartments


There is something friendly about these older apartment buildings that have multiple entrances opening off a central courtyard. I imagine that everyone must get to know the other people who use their entrance unlike those that live in high rises with hundreds using one entrance. This fine building is found on Bathurst St south of St Clair, a great location.

I also like these old apartment buildings. My grandparents lived in one in Chicago, and I always loved visiting.

Looks like a very human place to live. Remember the development Moshe Safdi created at Expo 67? I forget its name but it was supposed to portend urban dwellings of the future, but I don't think the concept ever took off.

A wonderful vintage apartment building. My grandmother and her family lived in a similar building. As a young kid, I used to love to walk in the hallways and see multiple staircases. You could enter one way and leave another, I thought that was cool. :)

It has a very European look to it. I think I'd enjoy living in place like that.

This is the type of building we need more of in our world.

One of my children lived in a building like this with a back courtyard. It was an old, but very nice efficient unit.

Nice entrance indeed.When everybody was still a name and not a number.
