Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Allen Lambert Galleria measures 85 feet high, 45 feet wide and 360 feet long. Build from 1987- 1992. Architect Santiago Calatrava.

The Merchant’s Bank building, built in the 1890’s on the left side, was relocated from Wellington Street and incorporated into the Galleria.

There is another photo (2009) in my gallery taken from the other side.

Allen Lambert Galleria was named after a TD bank CEO & chairman. (1911-2002). He was instrumental in bringing Ludwig Mies van der Rohe to design another Toronto landmark - the TD Center buildings (1967)

Super lines in this composition! This is a very dynamic creation, and the artistic touch makes it most appealing to my eyes... Strong contrast works well here!
