The property that’s home to Filmores Hotel, a downtown Toronto landmark best known for its downstairs strip club, has been sold to a developer for $31.5 million, property records show. The same developer, Menkes Development, also bought the parking lot next to the building for an additional $20.018 million. The deal closed on Jan. 16. Filmores has been in operation at 212 Dundas St. E. since 1985. Prior to that, another strip club was operating in the building under the name Stage 212. The building is a historic one. It was built more than 100 years ago as the Wilton Court Apartments. By 1915, it was the upscale Wilton Court Private Hotel. In 2016, the city listed it as a heritage property, citing its early 20th century Edwardian classical styling.
