In the lobby of a building at 95 Wellington Street West (just to the east of this building at 107 Wellington Street West) is this Ontario Heritage Trust plaque which says:
Plaque coordinates: 43.64670 -79.38221
The oldest private club building in Ontario, 107 Wellington Street West was designed for the Toronto Club in 1888-89 by Frank Darling and Samuel Curry. Its design mixes different architectural styles and marks an important transition in Darling's career. The sandstone base, terracotta details, windows and capitals on the ground floor reflect the Richardson Romanesque Style. The second floor's Palladian-like windows, pilasters and capitals, frieze, cornice mouldings and the nearly square attic windows are in the Renaissance Revival Style. The interior contains a billiards room, reading rooms, and dining rooms finished with wood paneling and carvings, stone and marble fireplaces, and plaster ceilings.

This is a great building. Too bad its such a hard building to get information about. This page and the heritage conservation district plan are the only pieces of info I could find about it.
