Facts

  • Built by the Van Sweringens on "air rights" over New York Central/Nickel Plate tracks leading to Union Terminal for their expanding railroad empire of the late 1920s.
  • Construction began in 1928 on the Medical Arts and Builders Exchange Buildings with Lundoff-Bicknell serving as general contractor. Construction did not begin until 1929 on the Midland Bank Building, for which Aronberg-Fried acted as general contractor.
  • The gap, between Ontario Street and West Huron Road, would have been filled if Gateway at Landmark had been built.
  • The building is the world headquarters of Sherwin-Williams.
  • The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976 as part of the Union Terminal Group.
  • A late 1980s combination of the Medical Arts, Builders Exchange, and Midland Bank Building - a fourth building was never started in 1930 - the gap is still there.
  • Used as the "modern" backdrop for the more traditional Terminal Tower.
