The Tegler Building was a historic office building in Edmonton, Alberta. When it was built in 1912, at 15,750 square meters, it was the largest building in western Canada. It was designated a historic resource in November of 1981 but then in a motion from city council that designation was rescinded. The Tegler Building was taken down December 12, 1982.
Robert Tegler was a entrepreneur and businessman who came to Edmonton in the early 1900's. He saw ample opportunity in Edmonton and decided to erect the Tegler Building there. The building site was located at 10189 101 St NW. Herbert Alton Magoon was hired to design a six-storey building, 100 feet long, 70 feet wide and 80 feet high. Construction started in 1911 and was completed in early 1912. An expansion to The Tegler building was needed by 1913 and so Robert Tegler started construction on the third floor over top of the Edmonton Journal building.
While The Tegler Building was taken down in 1982, parts of the historic building and the spirit behind its creator live on in The Tegler Foundation and its subsequent buildings. The Tegler Manor constructed in 1982 houses many of the original bricks from The Tegler Building as well as the mural by Ernest Huber depicting early life in Alberta that graced the lobby above the elevators in The Tegler Building now hangs above the elevators in Tegler Manor. The Tegler Terrace and Tegler Manor Carrie on The Tegler Foundations charitable spirit.
