What happened to Newswest?

KT's relationship with Newswest represented a unique publishing model, to be sure, and the "paper within a paper" had a 40-year history in the community. The December issue was its final printed edition. What happened? Get the backstory and see what's in store for Newswest right here.

Who Lives Here? The house with the purple door

Not every home we profile for Who Lives Here is a modern new build. We also love to feature older, smaller homes that have been thoughtfully renovated and preserved. If you've ever wondered who lives behind the purple door on Athlone, wonder no more

Dave Allston's latest Early Days column is about the building on the corner of Richmond Road and Churchill Avenue. Its curved exterior wall places it firmly on the list of most recognizable buildings in Westboro. Although its commonly referred to as the Lululemon building, it's actually seen a few different incarnations. In fact, that corner has seen a lot of changes over the last 100 years. Don't miss the extra photos in the web version of this story! One of them shows the original location of Newport. (We're betting you don't know where it was.)
