Toronto's third City Hall took almost 20 years to plan and implement and began with an original budget of $600,000 and was completed for approximately $2.5 million. The stone, grey from the Credit River Valley in Ontario and brown from New Brunswick, took more than 1,360 train-car loads to deliver - the equivalent of a train nine miles long. Additionally, 8,354 barrels of cement were used.

Following the opening of Toronto's fourth and current City Hall, Old City Hall was threatened with demolition during the planning of the Eaton Centre. A group of concerned citizens and community activists, known as the "Friends of Old City Hall", convinced the city to preserve this important landmark, that complemented Osgoode Hall and the new City Hall. Old City Hall was declared a National Historic Site by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada in 1989.
