On the right is the Salmoni Place condo project. The site was formerly the Salmoni Building (1849-2004). Over its lifespan, the building was home to hotels, restaurants and a Stedman's. It sat vacant for years after its last tenant, the Navy Yard Restaurant, closed, with aging spray paintings in its front windows. The demolition was controversial, as referenced in an Ontario Heritage Connection article on protection of heritage properties.
