Recent renovations at the ROM and OCAD have been subject to much discussion, but there’s more to Toronto than contemporary architecture. Though often overlooked, there are a variety of interesting historical buildings to be found around town. This is the second in a series of three posts exploring some of these hidden treasures.
The Graphic Arts Building is located at 73 Richmond Street West. At only five stories, its scale sets it apart from neighbouring high-rises in the business district. Prominent features include Ionic columns and a classical inspired design.
