Reviewer notes

It has changed alot over the years. Originally Idylwyld Drive was Avenue A. Cole power station and an overhead footbridge, which linked the downtown with Riversdale at about 20 th Street. Warehouses sprang up along the rail tracks. Homes, and schools were scattered to the east of the train yards. Churches lined the river bank edge; Spadina Crescent was first named Church Road.

The western side of the rail yard became the town of Riversdale, and were smaller sized lots. The eastern side was the town of West Saskatoon When the revitalization downtown project commenced in the s, the rail yards were refashioned into the current downtown core, a shopping mall, and two large at-grade parking lots for the shopping mall. The rail bridge was demolished and an automotive bridge was constructed in its place.

The layout started on Avenue A which became known as Idylwyld Drive. Now all that remains of Avenue A are two blocks. Being tucked away from the main flow of traffic, some people have come to believe that Avenue A has disappeared altogether.

Private Remnant

We thought we'd put a cache here to put it back on the map. The cache only contains a log sheet. Please bring your own writing tool. A seven-story vestige of an old Yorkville chapel, embedded into a neighboring building, stands sentinel over an empty lot where the Spence School is constructing a new athletic complex. When completed, the facade will no longer be visible. Vestige of an old Yorkville chapel, embedded into a neighboring building, stands sentinel over an empty lot where the Spence School is constructing a new athletic complex. And it should not be covered up.

A monumental and long-forgotten Yorkville treasure has resurfaced from out of the past on a quiet crosstown block on East 90th Street — but it is quickly expected to disappear from sight.

Upper East Siders wishing to glory in its grandeur and other-worldliness must not tarry: At an unspecified date, later this year or in , it is set to vanish — perhaps for generations, perhaps indefinitely. If and when that happens, the last vestige of an historic superblock that once offered meals and housing and schooling and Catholic discipline to impoverished orphans of German origin will be gone forever. This is a story about relics, religion and real estate. But now, it is threatening to sever it for good. The object in question is an architectural remnant, a surviving fragment from an imposing neo-Classical, brick-and-stone church.

Only a single element of the original superstructure still stands — its facade. But what a facade.

It boasts exquisite ornamentation, detailed pediments, a circular rose window, decorative keystones that crown arched window openings and large Romanesque arches that once provided entry for prayer services. It was on that sprawling campus that the orphanage in built a hall, or gathering place, for its young charges, an elaborate facility located at East 90th St.

As a sacred site, its reign would be brief.


By — with the end of World War I in sight, and UES land values soaring in anticipation of waves of returning doughboys — the orphanage began to sell off its multiple institutional buildings to developers. But even though its chapel went out of business, it never left the block. The purchaser would have been chosen with great care, the priest said.

Meanwhile, over the next plus years, three other two-floor parking garages popped up on 90th Street between First and York. Flash forward to A new owner buys the chapel-cum-garage, adds several stories, converts it into a story condominium. Once again, the entry facade survives and is embedded into the newly constructed building. Directly to its east, at East 90th St.
