That building has one of the quirkiest facades in the entire city. 2301 Danforth has no heritage listing, but I'd hate to lose this cray-cray frontage entirely.

Agreed! It's a shame the mock Tudor detailing got stuccoed into oblivion, but the odd towers and clay tile roof remain to baffle passers-by.
 
Unfortunately, I think the existing structure lost its architectural merit long ago (I know, I know, that's not the basis of heritage designation). Happy to see this part of the Danforth get some intensification. Close to the subway, close(ish) to downtown; this is where we should be building condos.
