Scope and Content
This project series documents the construction of the Toronto-Dominion Bank Building in Toronto in1962. The office identified the project number as 6280.
This project consisted of a 56 storey, black steel skyscraper that came to exemplify the age of modernist architecture in Toronto through the introduction of the International Style to the older cityscape. The design of the Toronto-Dominion Bank Centre is almost wholly credited to architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. However, John B. Parkin Associates, in joint venture with architecture firm Bregman + Hamann, were the primary architects on the project, with van der Rohe acting as consulting architect. During this era, the Toronto-Dominion Centre included three buildings - two office towers and a single level banking pavilion which was about two-storeys in height. It appears that this project consisted only of the tallest tower, now known as TD Tower, and that the other buildings were completed under different project numbers assigned by the office.
The project is recorded through reprographic copies of construction drawings dating from 1966-1968.
Materials in this project series have been arranged by material type.
