In recent years, there has been a string of church conversions in Toronto, typically turning the desanctified buildings into condominiums. When repurposing such buildings, preservation of heritage architectural elements while insuring the compatibility of any new-build portions of the project with its surrounding context in terms of density, massing, and height, are critical to receiving municipal approval. West-end neighbourhoods with high church density, such as High Park North and The Junction are seeing this reconfiguration of their built environment in full effect.
