Level of archival description:
Extent and medium:
  • 562 drawings (including 169 reprographic copies)
Scope and content:
This project series documents a proposal for the headquarters of TV Ontario (TVO) in Toronto from 1993-1994. The office identified the project number as 9305.

This project proposed a seven-storey office building located at the corner of Simcoe and Nelson Streets. The site eventually changed to the corner of Sherbourne and King Streets. The TVO headquarters would include several television studios, a café, theatre, retail space, terrace and leasable areas. A tape library and parking would be provided below grade. A prominent spiral staircase from the ground floor to the second floor would be the focal point of the main lobby. The building's exterior would be primarily glass, with brick used at the ground floor. This project was never built.

The project is recorded through original and reprographic copies of drawings dating from 1993-1994. The drawings consist of sketches, presentation drawings, plans, elevations, sections and axonometric drawings.

Materials in this project series were compiled from multiple accessions and some were arranged by material type.
