The Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy Building, originally the Dominion Meteorological Building, is located at the southwest corner of Bloor St W and Devonshire Pl at the University of Toronto – St George Campus.
Built between 1908 and 1909, the castle-like building was designed by the architectural firm of Burke & Horwood. It was the Meteorological Service of Canada headquarters responsible for weather forecasting until 1971. The 2½-storey Romanesque Revival-style building is clad with rugged Miramichi sandstone. It features an observation tower and beautiful stone carvings at the main entrance. The tower was once topped with a dome and housed a telescope. The building received heritage status from the city in 1973.
