Toronto is to have a new dance hall and opera house.  Messrs. Bielenberg, Gable and Christensen, have stated the excavation, and the work will be pushed as rapidly as possible. The hall will be built larger and better in every way, as near fire-proof as possible, with steel inside and either concrete or steel outside.  This will be welcomed by all Toronto people and vicinity.  Sept. 19, 1916 

The new hall is a sure go now.  It is 102 x 44 feet, fire proof and modern with a double white maple floor, and when finished will be the best dance hall in the country.  Work has begun on the foundation and a big gang of carpenters will be put to work rushing it to completion.   Sept., 1916
