Ideal Bread Company Factory


Montreal architect Sydney Comber designed this factory building in the Edwardian Classical style. Its facades feature stone detailing and are divided into distinct bays by brick pilasters. Window design is unique to each level and reflects the original separation – by factory floors – of the processes of bread production. In the final stage, bread wagons were loaded from the ground-level archways on Argyle Street. In use as a bakery until 1957, this building was converted to residential lofts in 2007. The factory clock remains above the front entrance. Designated under the Ontario Heritage Act 2003
