Junction Craft Brewery (The Symes Road Destructor) Doors Open Toronto

Junction Craft Brewery (The Symes Road Destructor)

This building was constructed under R.C. Harris – Toronto's longest-serving Public Works Commissioner. The art deco style was popular with civic buildings constructed during this time. It operated until the 1970s as an incinerator, and then became a waste transfer facility. It was closed in 1996. Since then, it has been renovated and was re-opened in 2018 as Junction Craft Brewery.
