Meeting April 11 at NSS on LRT station in gracious old bank

Metrolinx has scheduled a public meeting for Tuesday, April 11, 2017 on the LRT stop at Eglinton Ave East and Mt. Pleasant. That’s the 1920 bank building which will be rebuilt to accommodate passenger traffic and commercial concessions as well. The elegant former Imperial Bank branch (later CIBC on the merger with Canadian Bank of Commerce) then Second Cup Coffee shop will retain the charming Palladian window over the former front door on the corner. That door will still be there but most of the hordes of train riders will come and go by wide new doors to be installed on Mt. Pleasant. At last word there will be shops including maybe the return of Second Cup. Not sure about that. The building was taken down stone by stone in 2016 and will rise again on a date not too far off.
