Looking east toward the new Globe and Mail Centre

The Globe and Mail Centre is a 17 storey building, on King Street East, in Toronto, Canada, that houses the offices of the Globe and Mail newspaper, and other tenants.[1] The building is adjacent to the former offices of rival newspaper the Toronto Sun, towering over it. Archeologists were allowed to excavate the foundations of Berkeley House, which were uncovered while removing a parking lot in preparation for digging foundations for the new building.[2][3]

The building was complete enough for some tenants to move in during 2016.[4]

Design[edit]

The building has a four storey podium, sitting on top of multiple storeys of subterranean parking. An additional thirteen storeys of offices occupy a tower. The ground floor houses multiple small shops.

The building has a "green roof".
