This is a look at some of the development along Main street in the past couple of years.
There were a couple of sizeable buildings opened on land that sat vacant for many decades, namely the WRHA Dwontown Access building and United Way HQ.
New joints like The Tallest Poppy, The Edge artist's village and Main Meats took over existing spaces. Even the McLaren got in the act with a sushi bar.
A couple of new projects are well on their way to completion:
Youth for Christ's Center for Youth Excellence at Higgins and Main.
The Bell Hotel doesn't look different from the front but from the back work is ongoing. The latest thing are new windows all around.
On the other side of the subway at Euclid, the former California Fruit Market is being transformed into the new, larger home of Neechi Foods.
