Scope and Content

This project series documents an addition to the Toronto Sun building in downtown Toronto from 1978-1980. The office identified the project number as 7816.

From 1973-1975, Parkin Architects Planners designed and constructed the Toronto Sun press plant and office building at 333 King Street East. This project documents an office addition made to the original building. This consisted of the addition of three floors to the existing three-storey structure. The top floor, the sixth, was the main focus of this project and included the executive suite with offices, a boardroom, a sunroom, and a private cafeteria.

The project is recorded through drawings and textual materials dating from 1979-1982. Most drawings are reprographic copies arranged within the textual materials. The textual records consist of correspondence, site and meeting reports, financial records, change orders, contractor and consultancy records, supplementary instructions, specifications, tender documents, schedules, interoffice letters, a project notebook and project agendas. File AP018.S1.1978.PR10.002 contains an index to the textual records, which was created by the office.
