1 Spadina
Built in 1875 on one of the few circular lots in the city, 1 Spadina was the original Presbyterian Theological School owned by Knox College. When Knox College relocated to King's College Circle in 1915, the Gothic Revival building became a hospital for WWI veterans. In 1943 it was sold to Connaught Laboratories, researchers and manufacturers of miracle drugs like insulin, penicillin and the anti-rabies toxin. The building, which rises from a loop of traffic like a fairy tale castle, was purchased by U of T in 1972.
