The area between The Esplanade and the elevated rail lines that run into Union Station, east of Lower Jarvis St. and south of St. Lawrence Market, bustles with pedestrians from condos and hotels built in recent years.
But it wasn’t so long ago when it was an industrial zone, where smoke stacks and small factories dotted the horizon, instead of sleek residential buildings.
Back then, industries were served by railway spur lines that allowed freight to be moved in and out, the likeliest explanation for tracks that can still be seen in the intersection of Market and Wilton Sts.
STATUS: We’ve emailed Rob Burlie, who’s in charge of road operations in that area, to ask if it’s possible to have the tracks removed, or at least smoothed over with new asphalt to reduce the chances of tripping.
