A FORMER SOAP FACTORY IS NOW A BEACON WHERE PARKWAY MEETS EXPRESSWAY

You know you’re almost downtown when BMW’s 30 x 60 foot ‘matchbox car’ display comes into view. The BMW Building is positioned on 10-acres overlooking the Don Valley Parkway and Gardiner Expressway interchange.  Resting on the original steel frame from its soap factory days, with an additional heavy steel frame to support the machineries, the rebuilt structure glistens in the TORONTO night.
