2896 DUNDAS ST. WEST
The property at 2896 Dundas Street West is located on the north side of Dundas Street West in the block west of Keele Street. Constructed in 1911, the Molsons Bank/Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce building is a fine example of the English Edwardian Classical style, designed by the influential Toronto architectural partnership of Langley & Howland and associated with the history of the Molson’s brewery family and the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. Situated at the heart of the historic West Toronto Junction, the distinctive scale, form and material of the landmark building contributes to and maintains the character of the late 19th and early 20th century ‘main street’ streetscape, where it is historically, visually, physically and functionally linked to the neighbourhood context.
