The Canadian Pacific Building at 62–65 Trafalgar Square (formerly 62-65 Charing Cross Road)[1] is an office building in Westminster in London, England. It was constructed as the London offices of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company and its affiliated steamship line (CP Ships), hotel chain (Canadian Pacific Hotels), and other subsidiary companies. It is faced with Portland stone and features prominent "CANADIAN PACIFIC" signage and a small clock tower.

Until 2011 the building was occupied by commercial and law offices, but is now under re-development by BMB for conversion into five luxury apartments. When the project is completed in late 2012 the historic structure will be renamed 'Trafalgar One'.[2]
