History

Built in 1905, this impressive four storey building was designed by architects Darling & Pearson. Created in Beaux Arts style with Classical details, the building features two Ionic columns along with two pilasters that hold up the triangle shaped pediment. The bank vacated the building in the late 1980’s. The duo, Darling & Pearson, designed many banks in Toronto and throughout Canada.
