Commerce Industry Integrity

Interior shot of the CIBC building at 25 King Street West in Toronto.

Completed in 1931, this building is the "Grande Dame" of Toronto's banking institutions. Designed by New York architects York and Sawyer, the 34-storey edifice casts a shadow of grandeur over the much larger structures that now dominate the city's Financial District. Located two blocks west of Yonge Street, this Romanesque building lends a sense of security to all who enter. The ground floor, with its banking rooms and grand lobbies, is decorated with wrought-iron detail and gilded mouldings that offer a sense of part revenue and part reverence.
