    Notice of Intention to Designate - 2946 Dundas Street West

    more

    Take notice that Toronto City Council intends to designate the lands and building known municipally as 2946 Dundas Street West under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.                                                   

    Reasons for Designation

    The property at 2946 Dundas Street West (including entrance addresses at 2948, 2950 and 2952) is located on the north side of Dundas Street West, east of Pacific Avenue, and contains a three-storey mixed use building with four storefronts at ground level and eight residential units above. The building, known as the William Rowntree Block, was completed in 1921.

    The property is located within The Junction Heritage Conservation District Study Area.

    Statement of Cultural Heritage Value

    Design and Physical Value

    The property at 2946 Dundas Street West has design value as a fine example of an early twentieth century commercial and residential mid-block building in the Neo-Gothic style with Collegiate Gothic features, the latter more often employed for educational institutions than for Main Street buildings. Buttresses, parapet walls with embrasures and brown rug-brick cladding punctuated by sandstone sills, lintels and caps are indicative of the style, while the "R" carved into the four pilaster capitals refers to the original property owner, William Rowntree.

    Historical and Associative Value

    The property has historical value as it is associated with the development of the West Toronto Junction and its main streets during the area's most prolific period of growth, following amalgamation with the City in 1909. It has historic associations with long-standing local resident William Rowntree, who commissioned the building, as well as the nearby heritage property at 2881-2887 Dundas Street West (1901) that housed the Rowntree meat and grocery business, as well as the offices of one of the area's first politicians, Andrew McMaster.

    The William Rowntree Block is also valued for its association with the Junction-based Toronto architectural partnership of Smith & Wright, whose commissions also included the similarly Neo-Gothic styling of York Memorial Collegiate Institute (1929).

    Contextual Value

    The property at 2946 Dundas Street West has contextual value as it maintains this portion of Dundas Street West's late 19th and early 20th century Main Street pattern of two-three storey buildings with a mix of brick shopfronts with residential accommodation, monumental stone banks and post offices that characterised the West Toronto Junction throughout its early subdivision and development history.

    Heritage Attributes

    The heritage attributes of the William Rowntree Block are:

    -   The placement of the property on the north side of Dundas Street West which contributes to its contextual value as this feature is representative of the early 20th century Main Street character of this portion of Dundas Street West within The Junction community

    -   The scale, form and massing of the three-storey building which contributes to its design and contextual value as they are characteristic of a local commercial and residential building and maintain the early 20th century character and scale of this section of Dundas Street West in the Junction

    -   The primary material cladding on the principal (south) elevation, which is brown rug-brick

    -   The roofline featuring a cornice in the central four bays indicated by upper and lower stone stringcourses and including four vertically arranged stone details, and the end pavilions feature a parapet wall with embrasures and stone trim

    -   On the principal (south) elevation, the stone details including the lintels, sills, spouts and caps, including the four capitals of the pilasters with the letter "R" carved on them

    -   The ground floor shopfronts are framed in stone, with the stone above the two end shopfronts being stepped (currently stuccoed over at 2952)

    -   The principal (south) elevation organized into two end pavilions with paired, flat-headed windows at the second and third storeys surmounted by decorative brick detailing, flanking four central bays containing four symmetrically-arranged window openings with flat headings at the second storey and segmental-arched openings and decorative brick headers at the third storey.

    Notice of an objection to the notice of intention to designate the properties 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 24, 2021, which is April 23, 2021. The notice of objection must set out the reason(s) for the objection and all relevant facts.

    Notice of Intention to Designate - 938, 944 and 950 King Street West and 95, 97 and 99 Strachan Avenue

    more

    Take notice that Toronto City Council intends to designate the lands and buildings known municipally as 938, 944 and 950 King Street West and 95, 97 and 99 Strachan Avenue under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

    Reasons for Designation

    The properties at 938 (including entrance addresses at 940 and 942 King Street West), 944, and 950 King Street West and 95, 97, and 99 Strachan Avenue contain a collection of buildings historically known as The Palace Hotel and Tavern or The Palace Arms and are worthy of designation under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act for their cultural heritage value, and meet Ontario Regulation 9/06, the provincial criteria prescribed for municipal designation, under all three categories of design and physical, historical and associative, contextual value and they are local landmarks.

    Description

    The properties at 938, 944, and 950 King Street West and 95, 97, and 99 Strachan Avenue are at the northeast corner of King Street West and Strachan Avenue. The building complex is anchored by the three-storey building at 950 King Street West, with a two-storey, rounded corner turret, four 2.5-storey semi-detached townhouses to the east 938-944 King Street West and three 2.5-storey attached townhouses at 95-99 Strachan Avenue. All of the buildings are fashioned in the Queen Anne Revival and Richardsonian Romanesque styles. The subject properties were constructed in stages over twenty two years from 1890 to 1902: 950 King Street West in 1889-90, 95-99 Strachan Avenue in 1897, and 938-944 King Street West in 1902. Frederick Henry Herbert (1865-1914) was the architect of all of the subject properties.

    The earliest building constructed was 950 King Street West, a three-storey Queen Anne Revival and Richardsonian Romanesque style, brick- and stone-clad building. The original building was erected in 1870 and was owned by George White, a labourer, who operated the Palace Tavern in the building. The White family tore down the original frame structure and replaced it with a grander masonry hotel in 1889-90, which operated under the name of the Palace Hotel. It was designed by the well-known Toronto architect Frederick Henry Herbert. The property at 950 King Street West was listed on the City of Toronto's Heritage Register on March 5, 1984.

    To the north of 950 King Street West are 95, 97, and 99 Strachan Avenue, which are comprised of three 2.5-storey attached brick townhouses and a one-storey addition to the hotel. They were constructed seven years later in 1897 in the Queen Anne Revival style and Herbert is the architect of record for the townhouses. The properties at 95, 97, and 99 Strachan Avenue were listed together with 950 King Street West on the City of Toronto's Heritage Register on March 5, 1984.

    To the east of 950 King Street West are 938 and 944 King Street West, which is the third phase of expansion of the building complex. They are comprised of four 2.5-storey semi-detached townhouses that are fashioned in the Queen Anne Revival and Romanesque Revival styles. The properties were constructed for a Mrs Emily Morrison in 1902 at a cost of $9,000.00. Herbert was again listed as the architect and R. Chalkley & sons was the builder. The subject properties were listed on the City of Toronto's Heritage Register on June 20, 1973.

    Statement of Cultural Heritage Value

    Design and Physical Value

    The properties at 938, 944, and 950 King Street West and 95, 97, and 99 Strachan Avenue are valued as representative examples of the Queen Anne Revival and Richardsonian Romanesque styles. Both styles were popularized in Toronto during the latter half of the nineteenth century and into the twentieth century. Elements of the Queen Anne Revival style are evident in the presence of multiple chimneys, the rounded corner turret with a conical roof, the mixture of the flat-, round-, four-centred, and segmental-arches and keystones, the blind wall arches, the ornamental dentil mouldings and stringcourses, the carved corbels, roof crenellation, notched decorative window sills, the use of multiple cornicles, the gabled and hipped dormer windows, and the oriel window. The Richardsonian Romanesque style can be seen in the masonry, which is a mixture of brick and stone with rusticated stone lintels, sills, and skirting, the truncated brick and stone piers, and the round-arched openings. 

    Historical or Associative Value

    The properties at 938, 944, and 950 King Street West and 95, 97, and 99 Strachan Avenue are valued for their association with the acclaimed Toronto architect Frederick Henry Herbert (1865-1914). Within a short five-year span of him establishing his practice, he emerged as one of Toronto's versatile and adept supporters of the Queen Anne Revival style. While he accepted commercial, institutional, and industrial commissions, he specialized in residential architecture and designed nearly 100 residential buildings throughout the city. His command of both the Queen Anne Revival and Richardsonian Romanesque styles for residential buildings can be seen in his elaborate designs of properties throughout the city, especially in the Rosedale, Annex, and Parkdale neighbourhoods.

    The properties at 938, 944, and 950 King Street West and 95, 97, and 99 Strachan Avenue are also valued for their continued association with The Palace Hotel and Tavern. The first Palace Hotel opened in the 1870s and it began functioning as a rooming house in the 1980s, with the tavern continuously operating for over 100-years. The Palace Arms, as the properties became known sometime after 1968, were important buildings in the community towards the end of the twentieth and into the twenty-first century as they provided lodging to socially and economically disenfranchised members of the community.

    Contextual Value

    Contextually, the properties at 938, 944, and 950 King Street West and 95, 97, and 99 Strachan Avenue are important in defining, maintaining, and supporting the historic character of the area. The properties are situated at the northeast corner of King Street West and Strachan Avenue, and they serviced what was once the centre of a thriving working-class neighbourhood throughout much of the twentieth century. While most of the surrounding industrial and institutional fabric has been demolished, the properties at 938, 944, and 950 King Street West and 95, 97, and 99 Strachan Avenue are surviving intact examples of this period of construction.

    The properties at 938, 944, and 950 King Street West and 95, 97, and 99 Strachan Avenue are physically, functionally, visually, and historically linked to their surroundings, where the distinct corner turret and conical roof at 950 King Street West anchors the northeast corner of King Street West and Strachan Avenue. The neighbouring properties at 938 and 944 King Street West and 95, 97, and 99 Strachan Avenue were strategically designed to remain sympathetic to the architectural style and form of the property at 950 King Street West.

    The properties at 938, 944, and 950 King Street West and 95, 97, and 99 Strachan Avenue are local landmarks. They are situated on the prominent corner of King Street West and Strachan Avenue and have functioned as a visual entryway to the neighbourhood for over 100-years. The subject properties are meaningful to the community in that for some 40-years they have housed socially and economically disenfranchised members of the community.
