     History
    A concrete factory / distribution site near Bloor and Lansdowne, in Toronto. Residents of Wade Ave. have complained about this business for a long time: constant cement truck traffic on their street, concrete dust, noise etc. I bet they're happy this place has closed down.
     Media Coverage

     Future Plans
    No idea, but it's right next to the tracks and is part of an "Employment Lands" designation, so it will remain commercial/industrial.
