Revised list of Heritage Attributes

As I understand, the heritage attributes of the property at 2 Station Road are:

• The Wesley Mimico United Church building

• The placement, setting and orientation of the church building on the northwest corner of Station Road and Mimico Avenue

• The scale, form and massing of the long rectangular three-storey plan with the engaged transepts at the four corners and the narthex at the south end

• The materials, with brick cladding and brick, stone, wood and glass detailing

• The low-pitched gable roof with parapets, stone coping, and the clerestory with window openings

• On the principal (south) façade, the stepped frontispiece with stone and brick band courses and buttresses

• The main (south) entrance, where steps lead to a trio of round-arched openings, with a pair of wood doors with glass inserts and transoms in each opening

• Surmounting the south entry, the monumental round-arched opening that incorporates round and round-arched windows

• The fenestration on all elevations, with the round-arched and flat-headed window openings with brick trim, and the stained glass windows in some of the openings

• The buttresses on the east and west elevations that organize the pairs of window openings

• The square tower, which is located midway along the east elevation and has corbelled brickwork beneath a multi-side spire with gothic detailing (the original entrance to the church was on the east wall of the tower)

The outcome of the Wesley Mimico redevelopment story will depend upon negotiations related to the Ontario Heritage Act

My understanding of the decision making process as it relates to 2 Station Road is outlined in a July 8, 2013 blog post.
