Sterling Tower is a twenty one storey art deco skyscraper at 372 Bay Street at Richmond Street in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Overview

Designed by Chapman and Oxley, and completed in 1928, the building was the tallest in the city for one year, until the construction of the Royal York Hotel. Henry Falk, a New York entrepreneur, was the builder responsible for Sterling Tower's construction along with local firm Yolles & Rotenberg. The Sterling Tower was part of Toronto's late 1920s building boom.

Recognition

On 18 August 1976, Sterling Tower was adopted by the City Council of Toronto as an architectural/contextual Heritage Property.
