The Old Toronto Star Building at 80 King Street West in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, was built in 1929 by Chapman and Oxley. It stood at 22 storeys or 88 metres tall. The ground floor facing King Street housed a few retail stores and at the east end the Stoodleigh's Restaurant. The Art Deco building was torn down in 1972 after its main tenant, the Toronto Star newspaper, abandoned it two years previously for One Yonge Street. Standing now in its spot is First Canadian Place.
