Description
The old fitness centre, or "Health Club" as they called it, located at the Crossways Complex. It is on the second floor above the retail area, between the two residential towers.
Partly abandoned, partly closed. No longer accessible by the general public, but part of it can still be accessed by the residential tenants to get to the sun deck during the summer.
Opened in 1975, this "high end" club could not compete with other clubs nearby, such as the Bloor Street Boxing and Fitness, located just across the street. The Crossways Health Club closed in 1991 (?). Since then it has not been used, but there are plans to revitalize it, but not as a fitness club. I have heard offices or retail, but no one knows for sure.
It once had squash courts, a recreation room, weight and cardio equipment, saunas and pool.
The pool is the only part still open, but to tenants only.

The information provided here comes directly from the property owners. They said that this area has been **ABANDONED**. There are currently no plans of putting it up for rent or using it for anything. Also, if you look at the photos, how can the rent a property where the ceiling is caving in?
There are **FUTURE** plans for this area, but are **UNKNOWN** at this time.

A section of my shop sits empty and unused, with several rooms and power... doesn't mean it is abandoned, just unused space in a building that is still very much in use. Based on your good description I would say this is closed rather than abandoned.

You know what I really don't like? Writing a really good description, and people don't read it.

Hmmmph. Now that you mention it, that was the very first thing that popped into my head scrolling through the pics too. Just didn't want to write it.

I would say this is vacant and "For Lease" rather than abandoned.
