Second heritage bank on Yonge St. will fall to wrecker soon

Josh Matlow (Ward 22) comments on the imminent demolition of the elegant former TD Bank structure at Yonge St. and Millwood Rd. in his current newsletter. He notes that a “previous council” approved the demolition of the building. He has been told there is “nothing we can do to save the building”  All this is yet more sadness after the surprise demolition of the CIBC branch at Yonge and Roselawn Ave. in January. There had been high hopes that a forward-thinking builder would save the edifice of the bank in a new project as shown in a  depiction above from last year. Now, as  Mr. Matlow says, City Planning is conducting a heritage audit of our community as part of the Midtown in Focus review of the Yonge-Eglinton Secondary Plan Area he requested. The results of this review are expected this year. He has also made an interactive map of all heritage properties located in Ward 22. Last hurrah for classic old bank at Yonge and Millwood

    A strong case could be made for demolishing and redeveloping most of Yonge Street from downtown Toronto to Newmarket. Toronto is so far behind architecturally. Having said that, can we have more iconic designs?
