I stumbled across this massive building with a wonderful open landscape, found out it's a water treatment plant.

































I especially liked the winding ramps in the landscaping, and how it was fully accessible despite being an industrial building. If only modern industrial plants were as open as this.

Wow... In Poland, water treatment plants are barbwired and no-one have access to the closest proximities :P

That is the RC Harris Water Filtration Plant; one of the nicest Art Deco examples in the city. Usually it is open to the public for Doors Open in May. I went one year and chronicled the visit in my Hot off the Press photoblog.
Wonderful building.

Nice morning pics to wake up to! I've not seen one of the old streetcars on the Dundas line yet, but I know they are running. I'd love to hop aboard one!

It was built in an era where big public infrastructure projects were celebrated and symbols of civic pride. Unfortunately today, Torontonians view such things as frivolous and only seek functionality: Pearson Terminal 1 being a good example of how the culture has changed.

If RC Harris were built today, no thought would be paid to making it beautiful.
