The History Behind 32 Davenport Road
Davenport Road is one of the oldest streets in Toronto as some 12,000 years ago it was a meandering trail first used by native hunters and traders. The Yorkville Condominiums is located just before Davenport Road curves at the top of Bay Street and it is these curves that make Davenport Road one of Toronto's few streets that is off the regular grid pattern of the city as it follows the original native pathway.
In 1923 a service station was built on the site of 32 Davenport Rd and 1939 the structure was then used by the CBC to store equipment for the visit of the King and Queen. In 1945 the building was used by brewers to house their offices followed by a direct mail company in 1955.
In 1966, 32 Davenport Rd became the site for the new offices of Moriyama & Teshima Architects. World-renowned for their landmark projects such as the Bata Shoe Museum and The Toronto Reference Library, Moriyama & Teshima have had their offices at this location for forty-five years.
