The history of “The Junction” dates back to the 1880s when the Grand Trunk, Toronto Grey and Bruce and Northern railway lines started work to this area. The railways brought industry to the Junction which in turn attracted the employee who were the first residents of this neighbourhood.
The Heintzman and Company piano factory, Canada Cycle and Motor Works, Comfort Soapworks, the Union Stock Yards and the Queen City Flour Mills were some of the most prominent industries to operate in the neighbourhood .
Today, the Junction Triangle is being modernized as abandoned warehouses and factory buildings are being transformed to urban lofts, or simply torn down and replaced with new townhomes. Once again this neighbourhood seems to be ready to become an integral part of the west Toronto landscape.
