Scope and Content
This project series documents a feasibility study for Imperial Oil Limited in North York, Ontario in 1977. The office identified the project number as 7701.
This project consisted of a study to determine the feasibility of expanding the Imperial Oil Limited building located the corner of Don Mills Road and Eglington Avenue. The original award-winning building was designed and built by the firm of John B. Parkin Associated from 1960-1962 and used as the Ontario region office. This study looked at different site schemes including an addition to the existing building or the possibility of constructing a separate building or buildings. Each scheme investigated different building heights and locations on the property but all were divided into 2 phases of construction. The study also looked into the possibility of adding a large, multi-storey parking garage to the property.
The project is recorded through drawings dating from1976-1977. The drawings are roughly half originals and half reprographic copies, the majority of which are site plans. Also included is an area plan of the region prepared by the North York Planning Board.
Materials in this project series have been arranged by material type.
