The 125-year-old Bloor Street United Church near Huron could soon be a 125-year-old church connected to a massive, modern condo development. According to the church’s website, the congregation wants to create a newer, more flexible and greener building to house a service and meeting space and the headquarters for the United Church of Canada, plus some condos (natch). Though the preliminary plans look pretty glassy, Michael Hilliard, the chair of the church’s redevelopment committee, assured BlogTO that the historic façade would remain intact. B+H architects are reportedly behind the designs—the firm has some neighbourhood history, having worked on the gallery space for the equally loved and loathed Royal Ontario Museum overhaul. [BlogTO]
