“By the turn of the nineteenth century, industrial buildings (factories and commercial warehouses) began to replace the finer grained residential building fabric in the areas around Spadina, especially after the Great Fire of 1904, which destroyed the City’s primary manufacturing district near Front and Bay Streets. Following this event, the area of King-Spadina  became the industrial centre of Toronto.” - 590 King Heritage Impact Statement
