937 Broadview Avenue

New townhomes remain unoccupied

Added 2009-09-17

In the late 1980s, when I lived on Browning Avenue, there was a house at 937 Broadview Avenue, on the northeast corner of Fulton Avenue, which had been converted into a doctor's office. I passed it on the way to Food City (now Sobey's, just north of Mortimer), and often fantasized about stealing the Broadview street sign on the corner, because it had "937" on it.

This house was demolished a few years ago, replaced by a group of four new townhomes, which, curiously, have remained uninhabited. These homes have Fulton Avenue addresses, and the Broadview street sign is gone.

Search the City of Toronto Archives for "Fulton" and you will find two pictures of this property, which was owned by the TTC and vacant in the 1930s.

Across the street from this property today is "Helliwell Place," a 23-storey apartment building.
