Scope and Content

This project series documents alterations and extensions made to the Toronto Sun building in downtown Toronto in 1976. The office identified the project number as 7633.

This project consisted primarily of an extension to the building's press hall and alterations. An addition of approximately 20,000 square feet was proposed to house printing operations on property once occupied by parking. The new space would permit the addition of a new printing press, adding 4 units of press to the existing10 unit press line. Due to the erasure of parking, this project is also heavily concerned with the search for new parking for the building. Parkin Architects Planners had designed and constructed the original Toronto Sun building at 333 King Street East from 1973-1975.

The project is recorded through drawings, textual records, photographs and slides dating from 1974-1981. The majority of drawings are of details and are arranged within the textual records. The photographic materials show the building's exterior and masonry. The textual records include correspondence, specifications, meeting and site reports, tender documents, consultancy records, bylaw and building authority records, financial documents, change orders, supplementary instructions, interoffice letters, and contracts. File AP018.S1.1976.PR25.001 contains an index to the textual records, which was created by the office.
