Wesley Building, CityTV/CTV
The Wesley Building was designed by Burke Horwood & White in 1913 to house the Methodist Book and Publishing Company (later the Ryerson Press). This broadcasting building is a designated heritage property, distinctive for its fine cream-coloured terra cotta tile cladding and ornamentation.
ERA was retained to oversee the restoration of the terra cotta tile exterior. This work involved extensive on-site building analysis and documentation connected to digital schedules to provide a long-term maintenance plan. This phased project was completed over five years. ERA continues to provide consulting services for heritage work.
The building was formerly home to CityTV, MuchMusic, and Speaker’s Corner. It is now owned and operated by CTV and Bell Media.
