Weston Bakery / 462 Eastern Ave

Brown’s bread (1919-??) / Intercity baking / Weston Bread (??-2014) / Wonder condos (2014 – present)
462 eastern ave
Toronto, Canada

apr 2019

I think someone in the discord spotted it – after a few years of being buttoned up real tight, Weston bakery on eastern ave was being torn down – and so on a gray April day in 2019 me, rusty and fleeting made a punt at this grand old bread factory.

I actually haven’t been back to this building recently, and couldn’t tell you if the condofication has been completed yet or if it’s occupied – however, at least the façade of the building was saved and it should look somewhat similar from the outside today.


Ground floor – mushroom columns, or whatever theyre called

As one would expect in a modern factory – tanks and piping everywhere.

Detail of an oven. This thing was as big as 1.5 shipping containers or so – about that cross section and length.





Pipes and stuff neatly stacked and sorted for scrapping.


Big hoppers on the top floor for flour. They would have been loaded with a vacuum system.


Part of a giant conveyor for cooling loaves as the exited the oven I think.

Goofing around

Two things I remember about that day were-
1. The door was unlocked and that was how we got in
2. There were several other people in there – a guy that was talking to himself, at least one scrapper armed with a saw, and another urbexer who used to be on uer

Strange company

Typically these places are locked real tight between when the developer buys them until demolition starts – so unfortunately for us there’s often chunks of the building missing by the time we can easily get in

Despite my intentions I only made one go at this place and soon enough there was basically nothing left to see… and in hindsight there was a lot of stuff in there important to the story of the building that I either didn’t take pictures of at all, or they were real stinkers and I cut them from this post. So here’s all I have from this excursion – less than ideal, but I figured posting some shots would be better than having these languish away in the hard drive.

The oven and cooling racks were great. I've been meaning to walk down that way actually since it should be completed. I have their promo brochure somewhere. If I find it, I'll post some shots.
