PwC Canada is one of several major companies that began moving into the PwC Tower last fall; as I noted way back in a June 29 2011 post, other tenants will include personal and commercial insurance firm RSA Canada, engineering & construction organization SNC-Lavalin, and the commercial real estate services company Avison Young.

The 650,000 square foot office tower, also known by its 18 York street address, was designed by KPMB Architects. Extensive information about the building is available on the 18 York project page of the KMPB website.

Below is a series of photos I’ve taken of the PwC Tower since last autumn.
