The Globe and Mail will have a new base of operations in Toronto.

The Canadian media giant announced on January 31 its plans to construct a 480,000-sq. ft. building, located at the north-west corner of Front Street and Spadina Avenue.

The project will include an 18-storey, multi-tenant building that will link to a six-storey podium housing The Globe and Mail.

The building will be built to LEED Gold standards and designed by Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg Architects (KPMB).

KPMB has won 11 Governor General Awards and has worked on several other high-profile projects across Canada; including TIFF Bell Lightbox, Canada’s National Ballet School, the Royal Conservatory TELUS Centre, Manitoba Hydro’s energy-efficient office tower in Winnipeg, the Jackson Triggs Niagara Estate Winery, CIGI Campus in Waterloo and the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa.

The Globe and Mail’s new building is scheduled for completion by late 2015.
