Tip Top Tailor Lofts| 637 Lakeshore Blvd W

The Tip Top Tailors building was the most elegant industrial structures built in Toronto in the 1920’s. Located at 637 Lakeshore Blvd West ( just west of Lakeshore and Bathurst), the area in the 20’s was nothing like it is today as you can see from the image below.

The design incorporated all the key elements of the Art Deco genre, including a symmetrical facade, strong vertical lines, multiple wall planes at the corners, an elegant two-storey front entrance with articulated brass doors, and numerous examples of geometric and figurative decoration.
