Jekyll and Hyde

My feature location for this week is one I am calling Jekyll & Hyde, while browsing the photos it may appear that I am showing clips/shots from two different locations. That is not the case, you are looking at a building with one portion that was built in 1922 with additions built in the 50's and then in the 60's.

The building saw mixed uses over the years from a single owner occupying the whole building to being separated and split for a number of different organizations. In/around 2001 the building was sold to a developer and there is now a plan in place to demolish the newer additions, preserve the original 1922 portion and build a condo development on the site

Entering this location and heading to the west, the air inside was thick and stale with decay, black mold and all kinds of nasty business everywhere. This was clearly the side that will be demolished.

Navigating the stairwells and the various levels the air got thicker, as did the cobwebs. Lots of evidence of police or military training was found inside, lots of decay, black mold and all the nastiness that comes with what we do.

We were about to leave and move onto the next location when one of us found a door that opened to the other side of the abandoned building. We couldn't believe the difference and that we were actually seeing this in the same place!

On this side of the building the air was fresh, the heat was on, there was still power but it's been closed and unused for quite some time.

Huge thanks to Trespassing Wayfarer for the goods on this one!

Indeed, and I read in a recent article that there are plans in the work to convert the plot into a new school by the fall of 2018. The current plan is to save as much of the Jekyll side as possible. Unfortunately, the same a cannot be said for Hyde. This place is probably going to be under serious development in the next few months.

Yes, that is all correct, I saw a report today showing the sketch of the proposed development and the 1922 (or Jekyll lol) side does have heritage designation and will be saved to be a part of the new development

I just wuv a pastime that gets into your blood



That's the kind of place that's worth a revisit(s) especially at dawn or sunset
Some many windows/stairs, so little time.

I was looking through some old photos today and saw this one. It's the same room as your 7th picture, but 8 months prior. Kind of crazy lol.
