Notice of Intention to Designate - 15 Duncan Street and 158 Pearl Street

Topic

  • Heritage > Intention to designate a heritage property

Notice Date

2019-03-19

Take notice that Toronto City Council intends to designate the lands and buildings known municipally as 15 Duncan Street and 158 Pearl Street under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

15 DUNCAN STREET: 

Reasons for Designation

The property at 15 Duncan Street is worthy of  designation under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act or its cultural heritage value, and meets Ontario Regulation 9/06, the provincial criteria prescribed for municipal designation under all three categories of design, associative and contextual value. 

Description

The property at 15 Duncan Street is located on the northeast corner of Pearl Street, and contains a three-storey factory building that was constructed in 1903 according to the designs of the Toronto architectural firm of Gregg and Gregg.  The Canada Printing Ink Company commissioned the building, which it occupied for over half a century.

The property at 15 Duncan Street was included on the City of Toronto's Heritage Register in 2016.  In October 2017, Council designated the King-Spadina Heritage Conservation District (HCD) under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act by By-law 1111-2017, which was amended by By-law 1241-2017.  In 2018, the HCD was under appeal.  The King-Spadina HCD Plan (2016) identifies 15 Duncan Street as a contributing heritage property.

Statement of Cultural Heritage Value

The property at 15 Duncan Street has design value as a well-crafted example of an early 20th century factory in the King-Spadina neighbourhood, which was designed with features of Edwardian Classicism, the most popular style for most building types during this era.  The design is distinguished by its symmetry and the classical embellishments that are identified with the style, and particularly by the arcades of round arches on the principal (west) and the south elevations on Duncan and Pearl streets, respectively.

The cultural heritage value of 15 Duncan is also through its half-century association with the Canada Printing Ink Company, which was internationally recognized for its development of inks for newspapers, magazines and other print media.  In its manufacturing complex in King-Spadina, the company produced specialty inks and developed new technologies, which included the Maxichrom System (the forerunner to the Mix-and-Match System of the 1970s) where any colour could be matched using 12 basic inks.

The Canada Printing Ink Building is valued for its contributions to the development and evolution of the King-Spadina neighbourhood in the early 20th century when the area changed from an institutional enclave adjoined by residential subdivisions to Toronto's new manufacturing district after the Great Fire of 1904.  The Canada Printing Ink Building was one of the first buildings completed on the former Upper Canada College lands following the redevelopment of the campus for industrial uses.

The historical value of the property at 15 Duncan Street is also through its connection with the Toronto architectural firm of Gregg and Gregg, which designed the Canada Printing Ink Building prior to the dissolution of the partnership.  While W. R. (William Rufus) Gregg and his younger brother, A. R. (Alfred Holden) Gregg led successful architectural practices alone and with other architects, during the period from 1893 to 1904 when they worked together the pair is credited with several factories in the King-Spadina neighbourhood, including the Eclipse Whitewear Building (1903) at King Street West and John Street, the White Swan Mills Building at 158 Pearl Street, and the subject building.

Contextually, the value of the property at 15 Duncan Street is through its support for the historical character of the King-Spadina neighbourhood where it is part of an important collection of former factories and warehouses that changed the area from its origins as an institutional and residential district to Toronto's manufacturing centre after the Great Fire of 1904.  The Canada Printing Ink Building is historically and visually linked to its setting where, with the adjoining White Swan Mills Building (1903) at 158 Pearl Street and the Southam Press Building (1908) at 19 Duncan Street, it is part of the surviving trio of early 20th century industrial buildings that anchor the northeast corner of Duncan and Pearl streets, south of Adelaide Street West.

Heritage Attributes

The heritage attributes of the Canada Printing Ink Building at 15 Duncan Street are:

-     The placement, setback and orientation of the building on the northeast corner of Duncan and Pearl streets

-     The scale, form and massing of the three-storey building above the raised base with the window openings

-     The materials, with the red brick cladding and the brick stone and wood detailing

-     The roofline, with the extended eaves

-     The organization of the principal (west) elevation on Duncan Street into 10 bays and the south elevation along Pearl Street into eight bays

-     The classical arrangement of the principal (west) and south elevations, with the base, the two-storey arcades and, above the stone cornice, the attic

-     The fenestration, with the segmental-arched openings in the base, first and third stories (as well as the pair of diminutive openings above the west entrance), the round-arched openings in the second storey, and the brick and stone trim

-     The west entrance, which is placed in the fifth bay from the south end and has been altered

-     On the principal (west) elevation, the two northernmost bays that have been altered to reflect the design of the original building

158 PEARL STREET:

Reasons for Designation

The property at 158 Pearl Street (which includes the address at 154 Pearl Street) is worthy of designation under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act for its cultural heritage value, and meets Ontario Regulation 9/06, the provincial criteria prescribed for municipal designation under all three categories of design, associative and contextual value.

Description

The property at 158 Pearl Street is located on the north side of the street, east of Duncan Street, and contains a three-storey factory building that was constructed in 1903 according to the designs of the Toronto architectural firm of Gregg and Gregg.  The original occupant, White Swan Mills, producers of flour, cereals and spices, remained in this location for 25 years, followed by the stationery department of the Canadian Bank of Commerce (forerunner to today's Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, or CIBC) for over 30 years.

The property at 158 Pearl Street was included on the City of Toronto's Heritage Register in 2016.  In October 2017, Council designated the King-Spadina Heritage Conservation District (HCD) under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act by By-law 1111-2017, which was amended by By-law 1241-2017.  In 2018, the HCD was under appeal.  The King-Spadina HCD Plan (2016) identifies 158 Pearl Street as a contributing heritage property.

Statement of Cultural Heritage Value

The property at 158 Pearl Street has design value as a well-crafted example of an early 20th century factory in the King-Spadina neighbourhood, which was designed with features of Edwardian Classicism, the most popular style for most building types during this era.  The design of the White Swan Mills Building is distinguished by its symmetry and the classical embellishments that are identified with the style, and particularly by the semi-arched pediments that mark either end of the principal (south) elevation.

The White Swan Mills Building is also valued for its contributions to the development and evolution of the King-Spadina neighbourhood in the early 20th century when the area changed from an institutional enclave adjoined by residential subdivisions to Toronto's new manufacturing district after the Great Fire of 1904.  The White Swan Mills Building was one of the first buildings completed on the former Upper Canada College lands following the redevelopment of the campus for industrial uses.

The historical value of the property at 158 Pearl Street is also through its connection with the Toronto architectural firm of Gregg and Gregg, which designed the White Swan Mills Building prior to the dissolution of the partnership.  While W.

Heritage Attributes

The heritage attributes of the White Swan Mills Building on the property at 158 Pearl Street are:

-     The placement, setback and orientation of the building on the north side of Pearl Street, east of Duncan Street

-     The scale, form and massing of the three-storey building above the raised base with the window openings

-     The materials, with the red brick cladding and the brick, stone and wood detailing

-     The roofline, which is anchored at the east and west ends of the principal (south) elevation by segmental-arched pediments

-     The organization of the principal (south) elevation into seven bays by brick pilasters that extend to a stone band course

-     Between the pilasters on the principal (south) elevation, the pairs of flat-headed window openings with stone lintels and sills

-     The east side elevation of the original building, which is viewed from Pearl Street and continues the cladding, fenestration and detailing from the principal (south) elevation

The rear (north) elevation has been altered.  The northeast addition, which was completed in the early 1980s, is not identified as a heritage attribute.

Notice of Intention to Designate - 64 Wellesley Street East

Topic

  • Heritage > Intention to designate a heritage property

Notice Date

2019-03-18

Take notice that Toronto City Council intends to designate the lands and buildings known municipally as 64 Wellesley Street East under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

Reasons for Designation

The property at 64 Wellesley Street East is worthy of designation under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act for its cultural heritage value, and meets Ontario Regulation 9/06, the provincial criteria prescribed for municipal designation under all three categories of design, associative and contextual value.

Description:

Located on the north side of the street between Yonge Street (west) and Church Street (east), the property at 64 Wellesley Street East contains the Wellesley Apartments, a five-storey apartment building completed in 1931 according to the designs of Toronto architect J. E. H. Paisley.  The site was identified as having cultural heritage interest in the North Downtown Yonge Street Urban Design Guidelines adopted by City Council in 2013.

Statement of Significance:

The property at 64 Wellesley Street East is valued for its design as a well-crafted apartment building from the interwar era with features of the Georgian Revival style popularized for residential architecture.  Its design is distinguished by the classical detailing on the main (south) entrance surround, which is a hallmark of the style, as well as the stair-hall window above with its scrollwork and metal balustrade, and the parapet along the south roofline with the stone-framed openings and triangular-shaped pediment.

The associative value of the Wellesley Apartments is through the connection of the building to Toronto architect J. E. H. (James Edward Harris) Paisley who designed the complex.  Paisley was affiliated with the Toronto Board of Education and local practitioner Ferdinand H. Marani before he established a solo office in the 1920s.  While his career was hindered by the Great Depression of the 1930s, he received recognition through his designs for a small collection of apartment houses for Grover C. Murdoch, including 64 Wellesley Street East, as part of his surviving portfolio in Toronto.

Contextually, the property at 64 Wellesley Street East has cultural heritage value through its historical, visual and physical links to its setting beside the Paul Kane House (1853, with later additions), a local landmark in Toronto, and its proximity to Church Street in the centre of the Church-Wellesley neighbourhood.

Heritage Attributes:

The heritage attributes of the Wellesley Apartments at 64 Wellesley Street East are:

-     The setback, placement and orientation of the building on the north side of the street between Yonge Street (west) and Church Street (east) and beside (east of) the Paul Kane House

-     The scale, form and massing of the five-storey I-shaped plan, which is organized with the main body (south) and the wing (north)

-     The materials, with the brick cladding and the brick, stone, wood and metal detailing

-     The flat roofline with the parapet at the south end, which has stone-framed openings, stone coping and a triangular-shaped stone pediment in the centre

-     On the principal (south) elevation, the organization of the wall into five bays with the central entrance in the first (ground) floor

-     The main (south) entrance, which is placed in a stone surround with classical detailing that includes an entablature, mouldings and brackets

-     On the south elevation, above the main entrance, the stair-hall window in the scalloped stone surround with the metal balustrade

-     The fenestration on the south elevation, with the flat-headed single window openings in the centre and outer bays, the tripartite window openings in the remaining bays, and the stone sills, brick flat arches and stone keystones

-     The stone band courses on the base and above the first- and fifth-floor openings on the south elevation, which extend across the south ends of the east and west side walls of the main body

-     The east and west elevations of the main body of the building, which continue the pattern and detailing of the flat-headed openings from the south elevation

-     The north wing of the building, which is set back from the main body on the east and west sides and extended at the north end to complete the “I” shape

-     On the north wing, the brick band courses and the symmetrically-placed flat-headed door and window openings with the brick and stone detailing.

Notice of an objection to the proposed designation may be served on the City Clerk, Attention:  Ellen Devlin, Administrator, Toronto and East York Community Council, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen Street West, 2nd floor, Toronto, Ontario, M5H 2N2, within thirty days of  March 18, 2019, which is April 17, 2019. The notice of objection must set out the reason(s) for the objection, and all relevant facts.

Notice Date

2019-03-13

Take notice that Toronto City Council intends to designate the lands and building known municipally as 663 King Street West under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

Canada Biscuit Company Building

Reasons for Designation

The property at 663 King Street West is worthy of designation under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act for its cultural heritage value, and meets Ontario Regulation 9/06, the provincial criteria prescribed for municipal designation under all three categories of design, associative and contextual value.

Description:

Located on the southeast corner of Bathurst Street in the King-Spadina neighbourhood, the property at 663 King Street West contains a four-storey industrial building that was constructed in 1900 for the Canada Biscuit Company according to the designs of Toronto architect A. R. (Arthur Richard) Denison.  Following the demise of the latter company in 1905, the complex was acquired by a trio of manufacturers’ agents who headed the Anglo-Canadian Leather Company, which became the lead tenant in the building.  A significant occupant between 1907 and 1921 was the Reliance Knitting Company, which eventually purchased the property following its amalgamation with another manufacturer.  The Samuel Trees Company, a saddlery manufacturer that evolved its business to produce automobile fittings, owned and occupied the building for nearly 40 years, a period when the Bank of Montreal operated a branch on the premises.

The property at 663 King Street West was listed on the inaugural City of Toronto Inventory of Heritage Properties (now known as the Heritage Inventory) in 1973.  The King-Spadina HCD Plan (2016) identifies 663 King Street West as a contributing heritage property.  Council designated the King-Spadina Heritage Conservation District (HCD) under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act in October 2017 by By-law 1111-2017, which was amended by By-law 1241-2017.  In 2019, the HCD was under appeal. 

Statement of Cultural Heritage Value:

The property at 663 King Street West has design value as a well-crafted example of an early-20th century factory in the King-Spadina neighbourhood with features of Edwardian Classicism, the most popular style for most building types during this era.   The sheer scale of the building is viewed on Bathurst Street where the west elevation extends 14 bays to Stewart Street, and the principal (north) elevation on King Street is distinguished by the stone facing of the lower wall and the organization of the windows above in a three-storey arcade.

The cultural heritage value of 663 King Street West is also through its contribution to the development and evolution of the King-Spadina neighbourhood in the early 20th century when the area changed from an institutional and residential enclave to Toronto’s new manufacturing district following the Great Fire of 1904.  The Canada Biscuit Company Building anchors a major intersection in King-Spadina where it is an integral part of the collection of industrial buildings that extends along King Street West.

The Canada Biscuit Company Building is also valued for its historical association with Toronto architect A. R. (Arthur Richard) Denison.  A member of one of the city’s founding families, Denison accepted innumerable commissions during a career that lasted more than 40 years and included brief partnerships with other practitioners.  During the period in the early 1900s when he designed the Canada Biscuit Company Building, Denison specialized in factories and warehouses, including the E. W. Gillett Company’s complex (1912) on Fraser Street in today’s Liberty Village, which is also recognized on the City’s Heritage Register.

Contextually, the value of the property at 663 King Street West is through its support for the historical character of the King-Spadina neighbourhood where it contributes to the important collection of former warehouses and factories that changed the area from its origins as an institutional and residential enclave to Toronto’s manufacturing sector after the Great Fire of 1904.  The Canada Biscuit Company Building is historically, visually and physically linked to its setting at King Street West and Bathurst Street where it anchors a major intersection in both King-Spadina and Toronto with the landmark Wheat Sheaf Tavern (1849) on the opposite (southwest) corner.

Heritage Attributes

The heritage attributes of the Canada Biscuit Company Building at 663 King Street West are:

·The placement, setback and orientation of the building on the southeast corner of Bathurst Street

·         The scale, form and massing of the four-storey building with the rectangular-shaped plan above the raised base with the flat-headed window openings

·         The materials, with the red brick cladding and the brick, stone and wood detailing

·         The flat roofline with the corbelled brickwork along the north, west and south elevations

·         The principal (north) elevation on King Street West with the stone cladding in the first storey where the main entrance is centered between two oversized flat-headed window openings and, in the upper three stories, brick arcades organize the pairs of flat-headed window openings with the continuous stone lintels and sills

·         The extended west elevation on Bathurst Street, with the organization and detailing of the flat-headed door and window openings, some of which have been altered

·          On the west elevation, the cornice between the third and fourth stories in the southerly seven bays, which marks the point where the complementary extra storey was added

·         The rear (south) elevation on Stewart Street extending five bays, which has an entrance in the first (ground) floor and pairs of flat-headed window openings above, and where the cornice between the third and fourth stories is continued from the west elevation

No heritage attributes are identified on the east elevation.  The adjoining four-storey building at 60 Stewart Street is not identified in the Statement of Significance (Reasons for Designation).

Notice of an objection to the proposed designation may be served on the City Clerk, Attention:  Ellen Devlin, Administrator, Toronto and East York Community Council, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen Street West, 2nd floor, Toronto, Ontario, M5H 2N2, within thirty days of March 13, 2019, which is April 12, 2019. The notice of objection must set out the reason(s) for the objection, and all relevant facts.
