Office Building for J.D. Crashley, Site Development, Toronto (1976-1977)
This project series documents the site development of an office building for J. Douglas Crashley in downtown Toronto from 1976-1977. The office identified the project number as 7618.
During this time, J. Douglas Crashley, a prominent Toronto entrepreneur, sought to develop an office building in downtown Toronto. The site was located at the corner of Front and York Streets, with the project consisting of a proposed eight storey office building with retail spaces and underground parking. This site development also proposed connections to nearby attractions such as the CN Tower, Union Station and Congress Centre. The project is often referred to as the Walker House Hotel, due to the fact that it was the building located on the property at this time. Three years earlier, in 1973, J.D. Crashley had commissioned a site investigation of various locations in downtown Toronto for his office building, including this site, which was completed under a different project number assigned by the office (see project series AP018.S1.1973.PR13, also described in this fonds).
The project is recorded through correspondence dating from 1977.
