Located at Yonge and Summerhill, it is currently being used as an LCBO (currently the largest liquor store in Canada). Nearby is the TTC station - Summerhill Station. Freight trains currently still use the tracks behind the station.

The Summerhill station's distinguishing feature is its 43-metre (140-foot) clock tower - modelled on the Campanile di San Marco in Venice. The station was designed by Darling and Pearson and built in 1916. It served the CPR line running through Toronto. It closed in 1930 at Union Station became more prodominant and the depression hit.
