Scope and Content

This project series documents an expansion to the offices of law firm Davies, Ward and Beck in Toronto in1973. The office identified the project number as 7317.

This project consisted of the design of the 47th floor of Commerce Court to house the expansion of the law firm to occupy the entire floor. Previously, Parkin Architects Planners had designed the law office to accommodate subtenants, as the size of the firm had not required the entire 47th floor (see project series AP018.S1.1972.PR05 described in this fonds).

The project is recorded through drawings and textual records dating from 1973. The drawings are all reprographic copies of floor and ceiling plans and electrical drawings, while the textual records consist of correspondence.
