Security Building

January 29, Ted in Toronto asked about the Security Building, where his father had his offices for 40 years.

The rendering above appeared in The Border Cities Star, December 31, 1926.

The building designed by architects Pennington & Boyde, was built in 1927.

The caption to the render above read as follows:

According to plans of a local syndicate headed by S. E. Loveridge and C. A. Haley, this splendid office building will rise next year on the northwest corner of Pelissier and London (now University) Streets. The Security Building as it will be called, will be 10 storeys in height, with stores on the main floor and offices on the nine floors above. It will cost in the neighbourhood of $250,000.

$250,000 1926 dollars, is equivalent to about $3.1 million 2007 dollars.
