Architecture 

Completed between 1928 and 1930 in the Beaux Arts style, the Dominion Square Building is both a commercial office tower and a shopping mall. The site was formerly occupied by the Erksine Presbyterian Church c. 1866.

Designed by the architectural firm of Ross and Macdonald, the building comprises twelve floors,  the main entrance primarily serves as the entrance to the Montreal Gazette with the escalators leading to a mezzanine looking out onto the ground floor below.

This architectural solution allows natural light to filter through the  mezzanine level in the atrium space at the entrance. 

During the renovations in 1989, a second and third floor extension was made on the south-side of the building over looking  Dominion Square Park.  The space, a glass enclosed atrium solarium, served as a restaurant overlooking the historic park below.
