About 72 Perth Avenue

72 Perth Avenue was formerly the Praise Sanctuary Ministry, Church of the Firstborn Apostolic, a Pentecostal church that relocated to North York. Since then, 72 Perth has been rented out as, variously, an event space, gallery, and showroom. It is now slated to become a mid-rise residential building, with the Biennial as possibly its last occupant. The proposed building is expected to be nine stories and include affordable housing. Situated next to the railpath, the passing GO trains are audible inside this former place of worship.
