    Default Tower Automotive Tower (Toronto, Canada)


    Northern Aluminum constructed the 10 storey art deco industrial tower and surrounding sheet-casting plant in The Junction, a West Toronto neighbourhood in 1919-20. The building was designed by architect J.W. Schreiber and upon its completion was one of Toronto's tallest structures. It has been speculated that it was equipped with one of the first elevators in Canada...

    ...It was indeed accessible, and as advertised the motion detectors were blinking red winks at us. We hoped the alarm was still unarmed, but didn't stop to check...

    Read all about it here...
