48 Abell

The building at 48 Abell is big and old and grey. Right now it houses a number of artist studios but it's about to be torn down to make way for condos in the Queen West West area.

Activist Michelle Gay, as part of a group called Active 18, tried to get the development stopped, but unfortunately they lost and the building is scheduled for demolition.

So I guess the poor artists will have to move out to Mississauga.

That's such a cool building. Why would they tear it down?
