Grand Union Hotel in circa 1912 & 2023

Posted:

Looking northeast towards the Grand Union Hotel once at the corner of Front St W and Simcoe St in downtown Toronto. The hotel was built in the mid-1890s, likely named Grand Union, for its proximity to the old Union Station. The hotel later became the Carls-Rite, and then the Barclay. The hotel was demolished in 1965 and became a parking lot for several decades. In 2019, construction began on a 46-storey office skyscraper.
