Leslieville’s rich history is evidenced by its iconic architecture. Once over the Queen Street Viaduct, completed in 1910, you’ll find streets lined by beautiful heritage buildings like the Broadview Hotel and our elegant neighbour, the Queen & Saulter Library, formerly known as Postal Station G, built in 1913.
Together these buildings tell a generational story. A tale of sprawling, multipurpose brick buildings housing tailors, studios, factory floors, and loft condos. Buildings where the models streaming in and out of studios meet young writers on the stairs. Where young photographers stare longingly out the windows as their motion-minded counterparts frame shots as a part of the city’s nascent film scene. Now these buildings are part of a bustling community that is changing at a steady pace all its own.
