     Interesting Features
    This is Toronto's second secret swing. Since the first one got ripped off, try to find the one in here. The building also has nice details worth checking out including sliding doors, nice hardwood floors, and a gaping hole in the back. Roof has stunning panorama. This is a weekend spot. Worth checking out SATURDAY and SUNDAY only. Don't attempt this spot during the week, workers mulling about. Use your common sense, don't leave junk, crap and other shit lying around indicating visitors unless you want the spot locked up.

     History
    Used to a be a bicycle factory during WW2. Not confirmed, but possible. Its a small industrial building with no more machinery. Looks like its being converted into trendy office space for yuppies.

    --Edit by yokes--
    I spoke with the construction manager (who's office is right outside the swing's location) about the building. It was originally a bike factory (the original overhead wood beams that held the overhead conveyor belts are still in place) and was converted into an ammunition factory during WW2. Subsequent to that it was mostly used as offices (paint outlines where dividing walls used to stand are still visible on some floors). It is currently being renovated for office use once again (I think.. this part of my recolection is a bit fuzzy).
