IBM Headquarters Building, North York, Ontario (1965-1967)
circa 1967 - 1968
This project series documents the IBM headquarters building in North York, Ontario from 1965-1967. The office identified the project number as 6511.
This project consisted of a U-shaped building located at the top of a ravine at 1150 Eglington Avenue East, on the same property as the IBM plant. The building was brick clad with bronze-tinted windows to reduce heat and glare from the sun. Planning also began for an extension of the headquarters at this time. The headquarters was a mixed-level building with four-storeys at its tallest. The building was included on Toronto's heritage registry in 2006, but a proposal to redevelop the site was submitted for consideration in 2018.
The project is recorded through reprographic copies of drawings dating from 1968, which consist of a set of as built plans, sections, elevations, details and layouts. Also included in the project series is a mounted presentation photograph of the finished building exterior.
Materials in this project series have been kept in their original order.
