The Opening


On this day in Canadian history (August 6, 1931), the Canadian Bank of Commerce (CIBC) opened its new head office at King & Bay streets; and was, at the time, the tallest building in the Commonwealth.


In the early 20th century, new construction methods and civic pride shuffled the “tallest” title from city to city with regularity. Yet the bank tower, one of the last major buildings constructed in Toronto before the onset of the Depression, held the title from December 1931 until 1962 with its 34-storeys and 141-metre height.


The main banking hall’s massive, vaulted ceiling resembles that of a cathedral while sculpted heads representing Courage, Observation, Foresight, and Enterprise overlook the city from the thirty-second floor observation deck. Long before the CN Tower, the observation deck’s unobstructed views of the city, harbour, and surrounding countryside allowed citizens to gaze at their city in an entirely different way.



The Canadian Bank of Commerce head office was the tallest building in the commonwealth from 1931-1962.


In the 1930s, standing on the observation deck, one could see a huge swath of Toronto and its surrounding area from the sky.
