After publication, I was made aware of some errors in my original post. I have included a corrected version below.
As of today, the Mozilla Toronto office has moved from our building at 20 Richmond to this little out-of-the-way place:
The CN Tower! 720 Spadina Avenue!
We didn’t want to talk about it until everything was fully settled, but we are now residents of an architectural icon building with a pretty ridiculously excellent view door. Full props to beltzner for scouting out office space, and to ben for orchestrating the move; it’s been a crazy pretty smooth couple of weeks!
Some information about the new office, since it’s a little more noteworthy different than the old one.
Q: What is the actual new address?
A: We’re now accepting mail at
301 Front Street, Suite 12811
720 Spadina Avenue, Suite 218
Q: Did that say 12811 218?
A: Yep. We’re a loooong way up.
Q: How do I get there?
A: There’s a stairwell.
Seriously, this can be a bit of a trick the first time is quite straightforward. If you come in through the usual entrance, you’ll be sort of pipelined into the “tourist” sections elevators of the tower. Those elevators won’t will go where you want them to, and the visit will end up costing you significantly more nothing.
Q. Do we get discounts for the tourist areas?
A. We do! As tenants we get basically a pad of discount coupons. Visit us first, and we’ll tear you off a few. No.
Q. What about the view?
A. Oh there’s a view. Of a brick wall. Unfortunately, we only have some cameraphone pictures from our move-in day right now, but we’ll get better ones up soon. In the meantime, here’s a taste.
Ahh, April 1. We really did move, and the new, second floor office in a normal office building really is a big improvement. The rest though, is a big fat lie (and full credit to madhava for the photo work). “720 Spadina”, “CN Tower” — the keys are right next to each other.
We regret the error.
