Confederation Building (Newfoundland and Labrador)

The Confederation Building is located on Confederation Hill overlooking Newfoundland and Labrador's capital city St. John's, and it serves as the home of the Newfoundland and Labrador House of Assembly. The brick-and-concrete clad building has 11 storeys and is 64 metres tall. It was completed in 1960 at a cost of $9 million to replace the Colonial Building. A lantern is located at the top of the copper roof of the central tower and acts as a beacon when turned on at night. In 1982, construction began on the West Block extension, a modern 7-storey structure, which is a six-storey building, with a gross floor area of 34,838 m2. The original building is now considered the East Block of the Confederation Building. A third building on the legislature campus is the Service Building Annex a two-storey building housing a day care centre and garage for some provincial government vehicles. More details on Wikipedia
