City Hall and Civic Centre, St. John's, Newfoundland (1968-1970)
This project series documents St. John's City Hall and Civic Centre in Newfoundland from 1968-1970. The office identified the project number as 68002.
This project consisted of three phases of development, with phase I being city hall, phase II being a commercial redevelopment, and phase III being additional public buildings. The master program included plans for a library, department store, supermarket, retail stores, a movie theatre, a hotel with a restaurant and banquet hall, a bus terminal and 160 residential units. It is not clear from the project materials whether these buildings were realized. The city hall site consisted of a concrete building on New Grower Street, which sat atop a concrete podium with parking below. A system of diagonal terraces with pedestrian areas also made up the podium. City hall, which was approximately four-storeys at its maximum height, included council chambers, offices, a great hall with artifacts and memorials, and municipal departments, among others. This project won an Award of Excellence for The Canadian Architect in 1968.
The project is recorded through reprographic copies of mechanical and electrical drawings dating from 1970.
Materials in this project series have been kept in their original order.
