The 500,000-square-foot Globe and Mail Centre will be the new home of Canada’s national newspaper and will anchor the emerging St. Lawrence neighbourhood as a hub of urban activity and corporate offices.
The tower occupies a block defined by King Street East, Front Street East, Berkeley and Princess Streets, with a public midblock connection between King and Front with retail amenities at grade.
The 17-storey building presents a sequential stacking of alternate-sized floor plates interlaid with terraces that give the structure a distinctive and contemporary profile. A high-performance building envelope and advanced glazing system supplies the energy-efficient LEED Gold candidate tower with daylighting deep into the core. Ten-foot-high windows offer views to the waterfront and city skyline.
