Jim Flaherty Building Vertical Garden

A two-storey-high living wall.

In joint venture with national architectural firm Dialog, MCROBIE Architects + Interior Designers was the Prime Consulting Architect for development of crown-owned lands for a $250 million, 650,000 square foot, 17-storey federal office complex. Located on the Capital’s ceremonial route alongside national monuments and institutions, the landmark building boasts a myriad of features including a high-tech curtain-wall system, limestone cladding, granite lobby finishes and a two-storey high living wall. The street-level facades were designed to create inviting pedestrian environments accessible from three streets and contain mixed retail. The building also incorporated a wide range of sustainable design features earning its LEED Gold certification.

Completed in Oct. 2014, the building was named as the James Michael Flaherty Building in honor of the late finance minister and one of the longest-serving Ministers of Finance in Canada’s history.
