The Sun Life Building, Toronto (1956-1960)
This project series documents the Sun Life building on University Avenue in Toronto from 1956-1960. The office identified the project number as 5631.
This project consisted of a 215 foot office building with 6 floors of basements, including 4 floors of underground parking, 14 office floors, and 2 mechanical floors. The top floors of the building were smaller in area than the rest. The rectangular building had a glass and aluminum curtain wall and was set back from the sidewalk on three sides to allow for landscaped forecourts.
The project is recorded through a mounted photograph of the building's front entrance dating from around 1960.
Materials in this project series have been kept in their original order.
