Cathedraltown - Markham, Ontario 2014.
Visible from Highway 404, just north of Toronto sits the abandoned Cathedral of the Transfiguration. Started in 1984, disputes between the land owners and the Byzantine Rite Slovak Catholic Church (attached to the Roman Catholic Church) resulted in the withdrawl of the church from the site. The last mass was held in 2006 and the building was quickly shuttered afterwards. As suburban Markham began to engulf the site, a new neighbourhood dubbed “Cathedraltown” started to emerge; a suburban community built around a European-style square with the cathedral as a centrepiece.
