documenting Aurora Intriguing Building, 15297 Yonge Street

Intriguing Building, 15297 Yonge Street

Very little can be found about this intriguing building located at 15297 Yonge Street, little North of Centre Street. This is the only excerpt I came across from Northeast Old Aurora Heritage Conservation District, The Plan, 2006, page 43: “The decorative concrete block apartment building at 15297 Yonge Street. Although much deteriorated today due to the effects of spray and vibration from Yonge Street, the concrete block terrace row represents an early and innovative example of workers housing from the early 20th Century using what was then a relatively new type of construction material. If retained, the overall form of the building could be considered for adaptive re-use to commercial uses.
