A yellow brick beauty is revealed . . . the Dineen Building, 140 Yonge Street.

After removing layers of grime and dirt, an obscure yellow brick building on lower Yonge Street has emerged as a Financial District mini-masterpiece.  The Dineen Building, 140 Yonge at Temperance, was built in 1897 for a prominent hat and fur manufacturer.  The architect: F. H. Herbert (1865-1914), designed many of TORONTO’s finest homes in the Annex, Rosedale and Parkdale.
