Tower Automotive: Boiler House

Tower Automotive: Boiler House

The end of August and into September was not a kind month to the vacant Tower Automotive property on Sterling Rd. In the span of a month, all of the buildings on the property have been demolished, besides the iconic 11-story industrial tower. The amazing old facades along Perth Ave. and Sterling Rd. were knocked down first, followed by the boiler house, and eventually the old chimney stack.

I took this photo inside the boiler house on August 28th 2010, just after demolition had started. A few days later, it was gone.

I will post a few more photos from this demolition over the next few days. I sure took alot of pics here, but I want to remember how it looked, and be able to compare it to whatever gets developed here over the next few years.
