Granville Square

Granville Square in 2015.

Granville Square is a prominent tower located at 200 Granville Street in Downtown Vancouver's Financial District. Completed in 1973, it stands at 142 m or 30 storeys high, making it one of the tallest buildings in the city. The tower and its plaza are located atop the tracks of the Canadian Pacific Railway, and adjacent to Waterfront Station (formerly the CPR station).

Originally built by Marathon Realty to house the headquarters of Canadian Pacific, the building currently houses the offices for The Vancouver Sun and The Province newspapers on the ground floor and some upper floors; and Vision Critical occupy the mezzanine and 4th floors. On top of the building is the Vancouver Harbour Control Tower for the float planes landing and taking off on the Burrard Inlet. This control tower is the tallest in the world.

Colliers International occupies four floors and is located in the building since 1973. The current owner of the building is Cadillac Fairview.
