Hermant Building: 21 Dundas Square

The Hermant Building at 21 Dundas Square was designed by Benjamin Brown in 1929. Benjamin Brown is historically significant as the first practicing Jewish architect in Toronto. The 15-storey art-deco-inspired building is a significant landmark at Dundas
Square.

As part of a 40-storey mixed-use redevelopment designed by Diamond Schmidt, ERA has been working as heritage architects on both 19 and 21 Dundas Square. Our scope of work has included:

  • preservation, restoration, and refurbishment of both buildings, including exteriors and lobbies;
  • restoration and refurbishment of windows and terracotta cladding for 19 Dundas Square;
  • replacement of ground floor signage at 19 and 21 Dundas Square with contextually appropriate signage;
  • design of new building lighting scheme; and
  • development of heritage interpretation materials.
