The original Casa Loma Castle was built in the early 20th century for the wealthy businessman Sir H.M. Pellat. After some time he sold the castle because he could not afford to keep the property and pay taxes. The building was used as a hotel until the 1930s, and then passed to the state. The castle was turned into a tourist attraction. From time to time it is rented out for private events.
The new city hall is very unusual and consists of two towers of different lengths and a round building in the middle, a hall where the city council meets.
The old City Hall building is a historic structure from the late 19th century. After the construction of a new building they wanted to demolish the old one, but the citizens stood up for the architectural monument. Today the old architecture of the building complements the modern buildings in the vicinity.
