The Commerce Building

129 1/2 Hunter St. W.
Peterborough, Ontario K9J 4X7

Loated at Hunter and Water streets, the Commerce Building was designed in 1894-95 by John E. Belcher, one of Peterborough's leading architects. The building's main tenant was originally the Commerce Bank, later the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. Architectural and decorative remnants of the old bank hall at the main floor level remain intact and can be seen inside what is now a restaurant. The building has undergone many changes over the years and now houses a vibrant arts community.
