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!
We didn’t want to talk about it until everything was fully settled, but we are now residents of an architectural icon with a pretty ridiculously excellent view.Â Full props to beltzner for scouting out office space, and to ben for orchestrating the move; it’s been a crazy couple of weeks!
Some information about the new office, since it’s a little more noteworthy than the old one.Â 🙂
Q: What is the actual new address?
A: We’re now accepting mail at
301 Front Street, Suite 12811
Q: Did that say 12811?
A: Yep.Â We’re a loooong way up.
Q: How do I get there?
A: There’s a stairwell.Â 🙂
Seriously, this can be a bit of a trick the first time.Â If you come in through the usual entrance, you’ll be sort of pipelined into the “tourist” sections of the tower.Â Those elevators won’t go where you want them to, and the visit will end up costing you significantly more.
Instead you want to take a hard left when you get in, and follow the signs for “Tower Offices.”Â If you get lost, ask one of the tourist reps, they are (unsurprisingly) used to this confusion.Â From the office elevators, it’s about a 70 second trip to 128, and we’re the 5th door on the right.
Q. Do we get discounts for the tourist areas?
A. We do!Â As tenants we get basically a pad of discount coupons.Â Visit us first, and we’ll tear you off a few.
Q. What about the view?
A. Oh there’s a view.Â Unfortunately, we only have some cameraphone pictures from our move-in day right now, but we’ll get better ones up soon.Â In the meantime, here’s a taste.
