It looks like the Globe and Mail's new headquarters won't be part of the RioCan shopping complex planned for Spadina and Front Street, but rather they will move to King Street East. The Globe's architecture critic, Alex Bozikovic, broke the news via Twitter tweeting that "The new @globeandmail building will be The Globe and Mail Centre, a new tower at 351 King St. E. by @DiamondSchmitt. 2016 move."
The 17 storey office tower near St. Lawrence Market will occupy the 13th floor and up of the 500,000 square foot building. The newspaper been at its Front Street location since 1974 and was looking for a new home since selling last year. Condos and retail developments are planned for the area.
