Commentaires : The Federal Building is located at 44 Hurontario Street, on the West side between First Street and Second Street. Description: Marble-fronted, Beaux-Arts Post Office with central, three-bay, Corinthian-order portico with central pediment, set between lower, three-bay, Doric porticoes, all with balustraded parapets and coffered bronze ceilings, and built in front of ashlar wall of two-storey building (housing three doors) and with dentilled and modillioned upper metal cornice (and hidden gutter) under battened, copper, hip roof (1913-15). This remarkable marble building, reportedly modelled on the Government House in Havana, pays tribute to the Greek Temple. Just as much in Main Street derives from the Renaissance and Classical world, or European fortified architecture, this building in particular, in material, form and detail, makes reference to ancient Greece.
