Simcoe Place stands in Toronto, Canada, at 148 metres (486 feet) with 33 floors and completed by Carlos A Ott and NORR in 1995. The late-Modernist building was built by developer Cadillac Fairview. It was the only major office tower built in Toronto during the mid-1990s, a period between the early decade real estate bubble and the building boom of the 21st century.

As a special project The Globe and Mail reporter Mary Gooderham spent two years covering the construction, writing some 110 columns on the subject. These were later compiled into a book titled A Building Goes Up: The Making of a Skyscraper.

It is the head office for Workplace Safety & Insurance Board.
