TD Tower.

TD Tower is located at 700 West Georgia Street in Downtown Vancouver and is connected to part of the Pacific Centre shopping mall.

The skyscraper stands at 127 m or 30 stories tall and was completed in 1972. The building houses TD Canada Trust operations in British Columbia.

When this tower was built, on the site of the former (and long-demolished) second Hotel Vancouver, its black-glass facing earned it the press sobriquet "the Black Tower", and with the white design of the adjacent Eaton's building (now Sears) it was considered by some an architectural disaster.

The first tenant in January 1972 was the recently formed law firm of McLaughlin, Holburn & Beaudin on the 16th floor. The firm has remained a tenant since opening and currently occupying the topmost floors. With partner changes over time, it is now permanently named Alexander Holburn Beaudin & Lang LLP.

The building is currently (2008) the home of Corus Radio Vancouver, as well as a number of law firms, including Farris, Vaughan, Wills & Murphy LLP and Alexander Holburn Beaudin & Lang LLP.

The TD Tower is one of the tallest buildings in the city.
