The National Press Building was constructed in 1917-18, but it’s not until the 1960’s that it started serving the parliamentary press corps and was leased to various media organizations.

The north facade (facing Wellington Street) and the first bay returns on the north end of the east and west facades are the facades that required heritage recording. The lower two floors’ exterior cladding consist of Indiana limestone, and the remaining upper floors consist of terra cotta cladding.
