Toronto Police Service 51 Division
416-808-5100
Non Emergency 416-808-222
Built in 1899, the former West Gas Purifying House at 296 Front Street East, is a heritage designated structure. The main west house building, plus two ventilation shafts on the north side, were retained and fully restored to provide a unique setting for this modern community oriented police facility. The schematic design of the station features the main public entrance to the heritage building on Parliament Street. A public space (community room and amenities) is on the Parliament Street side. The interior of the public access area is highlighted by the spaciously open ”West Bays” and south elevation celebrating their full height for public enjoyment. The second floor within this structure is pulled well back from the south and west elevations so the windows remain unaffected.

The Distillery District
Local developers have embarked on an ambitious experiment, building a downtown neighbourhood from scratch. In December 2001 Cityscape bought the 44 vacant buildings (and the cobblestone private roads that run between them) that once made up the Gooderham & Worts distillery and have since set about creating a pedestrian village out of the 13 acre complex bounded by Mill, Parliament, Cherry and Lakeshore. The distillery is now also the proud home of the Mill Street brewery and of the Young Centre for the Performing Arts and the acclaimed Soulpepper Theatre.
