Spelling[edit]

I restored the hyphen in Toronto-Dominion because that's the spelling used on the official site, which is linked to in the article. John FitzGerald 21:50, 6 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Prince George Hotel[edit]

  • The construction of the TD Centre required the demolition of many buildings. The Prince George hotel was but one of many, and by no stretch the most significant of those demolished. The big loss was the demolition of the beautiful old bank headquarters at Bay and King -- people still talk about that building. If the article is going to refer to the buildings that were lost to make way for the TD Centre, which isn't a bad idea, then it should do so comprehensively, rather than just randomnly refering to one building. I don't believe that we need to refer to every building that was demolished, but I think just saying "The site was occupied by the Prince George Hotel" is hugely misleading.

    • Makes sense to me! :) E Pluribus Anthony 15:41, 16 November 2005 (UTC)
      • I agree, though it would be good to see a detailed description of what was on the site prior to the TD-Centre. - SimonP 22:32, 16 November 2005 (UTC)
      • Absolutely. Some pretty spectacular buildings were demolished along King Street West to make way for the TD Centre and First Canadian Place. Skeezix1000 22:49, 16 November 2005 (UTC)

Pictures[edit]

I went to the Toronto-Dominon Bank Tower on 66 Wellington Street W during the doors open toronto in May. I was wondering if I could put some of the pictures I took into this article.--Taida 02:07, 24 June 2006 (UTC)

It would be great if you could add some of the images that you took. However, I'm not sure if the one linked would be best placed in this article, as it doesn't show any of the TD Centre. With a little cropping that would be an excellent picture of Metro Hall, and you could also cut out a good image of the CBC Building. - SimonP 13:43, 24 June 2006 (UTC)

Toronto-Dominion Centre[edit]

There are so many errors in this article that I cannot start to edit it. I was the assistant to Syd Bregman,the Executive Architect for the project and was intimately involved in the management of the design team. For example, the first stage of the project was the concept of the Bronfman family who retained Bregman & Hamann to do a preliminary study of an office tower on Bay St, not Allen Lambert. When they determined that the property required included the old TD Bank building at the corner of King and Bay they approached Allen Lambert who suggested a joint venture to develop the project. A company was formed, jointly owned by CEMP Investments, the Bronfman family investment arm, and the TD Bank and named the Toronto-Dominion Centre Ltd. I still have copies of the specifications,budgets and contracts for the project.Artell 04:59, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

You should improve it if you have the knowledge. That's how this encyclopedia works. It sounds like you could write the book on the T-D Centre. If you do or know of good source material, at least note that here. A.Roz (talk) 19:02, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

Consulate-General of Japan photo request[edit]

Someone should photograph the Consulate-General of Japan, which is located at Suite 3300 of the Royal Trust Tower. WhisperToMe (talk) 20:07, 17 August 2008 (UTC)
