The Globe and Mail is set to move, but only next door.

The Globe and Mail is set to move, but only next door.

Publisher Phillip Crawley announced Monday that the 167-year-old paper will move to the corner of Front and Spadina in Toronto, on a sport currently occupied by a car dealership.

The paper has moved seven times in its history; the most recent move was in 1974 when its home on King Street was demolished to make way for the First Canadian Place office tower.

According to a story in the Globe
, the new building will likely contain six or seven storeys, with room for other tenants and possible space for public events. The Globe also hopes to bring the current building's doors — which were taken from its previous building on King — to the new spot.

Construction is expected to start in 2012.
