Features the Allen Lambert Galleria, an award-winning, 6 storey pedestrian avenue conceived by Santiago Calatrava. The Galleria’s roof and structure is simply awesome. One part is reminiscent of palm trees reaching for the sunlight. It is 85-feet high, 45-feet wide, and 380-feet from end to end. The Galleria houses Toronto’s oldest surviving stone building, the former Commercial Bank of Midland (built 1845). BCE Place also includes several towers: the Bay Wellington Tower; and Canada Trust Tower.
