• Canada's tallest building since 1975.

• 10,000 people work at the First Canadian Place every weekday, 16 million people visit the First Canadian Place annually.

• Tallest building in the Commonwealth of Nations from 1975 to 1998, surpassed by the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

• When the First Canadian Place was completed it was the tallest building outside the United States and eighth tallest in the world.

• The building is currently (2010) having it's clading replaced. The original marble cladding has weathered considerably, marring the look of the tower, and it is being replaced with white fritted glass panels. The indented corners of the tower will become black in color as well.
