This stunning 12-storey Beaux-Arts building with terracotta facade and Renaissance styling, on the stately corner of King St. & Yonge St., has pierced the Toronto landscape since 1914. The first owners of this address were Michie & Co. Grocers and Wine Merchants. In 1876, the Dominion Bank took ownership, established the headquarters of their growing empire and conducted business here for 126 years.
Ownership shifted in 1999. Designated as a Heritage Building, Stanford Downey Architect redesigned the building for residential use. This project included the addition of a second tower of condominiums, nicknamed “The Sliver” owing to its slender profile. The redesign project was completed in 2006. This tower is the tallest residential building in Canada!
Today, this prestigious address serves as a residence, hotel, and a sparkling example of a Toronto wedding venue that marries modern style and traditional sophistication.
