The Tower Automotive building is on Sterling Ave. in the Junction. This ten storey building was built in the 1920s. Tower Automotive went bankrupt in 2005 and the building has been empty ever since. A number of years ago there was talk of turning it into studio space but for a temporary art installation or two, nothing has been done with this heritage building.
A chainlink fence surrounds the north part of the site.
….. but part of the fence was down and nobody was working on the site, so in we went.
Some of the graffiti on the west side of the building:

The sign says “Draft of Subdivision Proposal, 158 Sterling Rd. – Castlepoint Studio Partners Limited has made an application to subdivide the property at 158 Sterling Road into 7 blocks in order to create a mixed use development that will have building heights ranging between 2 – 17 storeys.
