Ogilvie Flour Mill

Ogilvie Flour Mill
Higgins Avenue (1882). Not exactly an architectural treasure, but it’s amazing how much nicer a ho-hum building was in 1882 than a ho-hum building in 2008 (think WRHA). What happened in those 126 years?

Ogilvie Mills: From the Inside

Ogilvie Mills: From the Inside

Several years ago, when I was an Architecture student, we were given an assignment to redevelop the old Ogilvie Mills ruins into low-income housing. A few adventurous friends of mine wanted to get a sense of the space inside the ruins, so I tagged along.

I guess this is really the only “urban exploration” I’ve ever done. It was scary (I almost plummeted to my death at one point through a hole in the floor), but it was very fun. And now that Ogilvie Mills is gone I’m very grateful I did it.

This shot was taken from the bridge that joined the silos with the main building.
