Mimico- Parklawn, Unchecked development slowly created huge western wall between the Lake Ontario and main street. The condo development is just rubber stamped by the city planning department! Here was just few year ago a large 'Qualitee Bakery', Wellington Printing Shop, 'Stefura Dance' studio, 'Kraft' office building, 'Kilborn' (SNC) major Engineering company and vegetable distributor . People used to go to work in this area.
Now, only Christie Cookie company is left in this former industrial part of the city. I give them max. 3-4 years. I can smell the baking sometimes in my house, but the property is way too valuable now, just to bake cookies!
Few hours after I uploaded this photo, Christie Cookies announced that the bakery will close in 2013.
