A roughly 11,350-square-foot brick and beam building formerly housing Toronto’s “Postal Station C” in the city’s downtown West Queen West neighbourhood has been listed for sale.
Located at 1117 Queen St. W., across from the Drake Hotel, this two-storey industrial building outlived its postal purposes last year, when its doors as a post office closed after more than a century in service.
Built in 1902 by Canadian architect Samuel George Curry, the building was listed on Toronto’s heritage register almost half a century ago but has yet to be designated under the Ontario Heritage Act (setting the stage for this non-designated listed property without heritage protections to be transformed into condos or a variety of other uses allowable within mixed-use districts).
Earlier this year, Davenport MP Julie Dzerowicz wrote an open letter stating Canada Post “classified that facility as surplus and scheduled it for sale in the near future.”
Prospective buyers have until July 14 to submit a letter of intent, which will be reviewed by the seller, Canada Post, and the realtor, Colliers International.
