Located on a tight corner in Toronto’s downtown Chinatown, the Bank of China (Canada) building was first constructed in 1988.  A unique design when it was first built, the 1,300 square-metre structure is now outdated compared to the aesthetics of architecture today.  Striving to modernize the existing space, the proposed alterations include installing a new curtain wall to enclose more space, expanding the ground floor to integrate the main entrance and atrium which will result in a greater opening to the exterior, as well as enhancing the second floor VIP area by adding a new public corridor to connect the existing eight VIP rooms.  A spacious waiting room will also be an added feature to the second floor.  Construction will start in March 2014 and finish in July 2014.
