The Globe and Mail Centre

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 16 January 2018 in Architecture and Portfolio.

The 500,000 square-foot Globe and Mail Centre is the home of Canada’s national newspaper and anchors the emerging St. Lawrence neighborhood 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 level.

The 17-story 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 building with daylighting deep into the core. Ten-foot-high windows offer views to the waterfront and city skyline.

Rick from Toronto, Canada

One of the nicer new buildings in the core, and one which reflects the sky nicely as shown in your photo. This is a newspaper established in 1844, making it an old one by Canadian standards.

That is a distinctive and beautiful building. It has that sort of mechanical look that brings to mind the Lippo Building in Hong Kong.

No doubt it is a building that marks the landscape. But in terms of surroundings, I do not know if it will be in harmony with the other buildings....
