Smashed/Tagged up building with a few wild animals living in the ceiling. There is a message on the door stating that there is a "hidden" alarm in the building, but looks like no one has been busted as this place is smashed up and tagged inside and out. There is a small stage area and outlet boxes on the side of the building for various microphones that used to be in the place.

    CHRO TV, now known as the A-Channel and owned by the CHUM Group, had humble beginnings in Pembroke as CHOV TV in 1961.

    Since the purchase by the CHUM group, the station has relocated to the former Market Mall in the Byward Market area. The building was sealed tight up until at least 2005. Then the vandals got in...

     Future Plans
    For some reason this huge chunk of surplus land owned by CTV/CJOH has sat mostly vacant for many years. There are also some small abandoned shops fronting on Merivale Road. It would appear that CTV has acquired several parcels over the years, but has left them to become rotten, overgrown and dumped on. A wander around will reveal old appliances, car parts, railway ties, pallettes, etc.
