Passed by on Kings Rd. early this afternoon. Not much apparent change on the backside, except for the one section being opened up. Street view (Oct 2019) for comparison: https://www.google.c...!7i16384!8i8192

Tenants expected to move in next year at renovated former Times Colonist building

The Times Colonist moved its editorial, advertising and business operations to Upper Harbour Place in Vic West last September, and its circulation staff to Esquimalt. The newspaper is not returning to the Douglas Street location, where it had been since the building was completed in 1972.

One of the newspaper’s unions is concerned that a sale of the Times Colonist building could mean layoffs in the future. 

 

Their concern should be that the TC follows many other papers and goes fully digital with no office and only a skeleton reporting and sales staff working from home.
