The Robert Simpson Company Limited Downtown Store, Office Tower and Additions, Toronto (1964-1968)
This project series documents an office tower and additions to the Simpson's store at 401 Bay Street in Toronto from 1964-1968. The office identified the project number as 6408.
This project consisted of a 585,000 square foot building with 9 low-rise levels and 23 high-rise office floors. The low-rise exteriors were visually separated from the office tower by their larger square footage and different façades. The lower exteriors were characterized by light amber metal panels and display windows of glass with stainless steel frames at the shopping levels. The building is wrapped from the ground to the top in concrete columns. The building contained the Simpson's store, barber shop, banking mezzanine, cafeteria, restaurant and cocktail lounge and headquarters office spaces.
The project is recorded through reprographic copies of drawings and a presentation board of a photograph dating from 1966-1968. The drawings are a set of construction plans, sections, details, elevations, project graphics, layouts, and schedules.
Materials in this project series have been arranged by material type.
