The John Street Roundhouse is getting a new lease on life.

TORONTO

The John Street Roundhouse is getting a new lease on life.

The 32-bay semi-circular structure formerly used by Canadian Pacific Railway for rail car maintenance purposes is now owned by the city. Since 1999, bays one to 11 were leased to Steam Whistle Brewery while the other bays have been unused.

The amendments to the existing lease will allow Steam Whistle Brewery to expand while the agreement includes provisions for a railway museum and restoration of the railway turntable.

The John Street Roundhouse complex was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1929-1931 to service steam passenger locomotives using the nearby Toronto Union Station.
