Historic Sites of Manitoba: Bank of Toronto Building (456 Main Street, Winnipeg)

Built between 1905 and 1907 on the west side of Main Street, between McDermot and Bannatyne avenues, in what was known at the time as “Banker’s Row,” the architect for the three-storey Bank of Toronto building also designed the Walker Theatre on Smith Street. The bank occupied the main floor and leased space on the upper floors to realtors, insurance companies, and architect John D. Atchison. The building was sold in 1946 to the Credit Foncier but it remained the bank headquarters for another seven years. In 1958, the building was sold to the Ukrainian Canadian Committee, which made extensive interior renovations. It is now a municipally-designated historic site.
