Commerce Court is that rare complex that intersects and inspires the worlds of business and architecture.
The complex, consisting of three modern structures and Commerce Court North (opened in 1931), sits on one of Canada’s most prestigious corners at Toronto’s King and Bay Streets. The North Tower, designed by the firm Pearson and Darling, is an historical, Beaux-Arts jewel. The three modern buildings and the remaining 4 acre complex, were designed by I.M. Pei, internationally recognized as one of the most influential architects of the modern era.
Pei’s timeless, human design, is evident in every detail of the complex; from the brilliant stainless steel exterior of Commerce Court West, to the expansive and inviting urban courtyard that unites a complex and invites a city, Commerce Court is a Canadian business and architectural icon

The capital of Canada is Ottawa, in the province of Ontario. There are offically ten provinces and three territories in Canada, which is the second largest country in the world in terms of land area.While politically and legally an independant nation, the titular head of state for Canada is still Queen Elizabeth.On the east end of Canada, you have Montreal as the bastion of activity. Montreal is famous for two things, VICE magazine and the Montreal Jazz Festival. One is the bible of hipster life (disposable, of course) and the other is a world-famous event that draws more than two million people every summer. Quebec is a French speaking province that has almost seceded from Canada on several occasions, by the way..When you think of Canada, you think of . . . snow, right?But not on the West Coast. In Vancouver, it rains. And you'll find more of the population speaking Mandarin than French (but also Punjabi, Tagalog, Korean, Farsi, German, and much more).Like the other big cities in Canada, Vancouver is vividly multicultural and Vancouverites are very, very serious about their coffee.Your standard Vancouverite can be found attired head-to-toe in Lululemon gear, mainlining Cafe Artigiano Americanos (spot the irony for ten points).But here's a Vancouver secret only the coolest kids know: the best sandwiches in the city aren't found downtown. Actually, they're hidden in Edgemont Village at the foot of Grouse Mountain on the North Shore."It's actually worth coming to Canada for these sandwiches alone." -- Michelle Superle, VancouverText by Steve Smith.
