First Canadian Place is located at the northwest corner of the intersection of King and Bay streets in Toronto, Ontario, the centre of Canadian capitalism. It is home to the Toronto headquarters of the Bank of Montreal, the oldest Canadian bank (hence the 'first'). The building is noted for its white stone finish, unusual in a city of glass, steel, and concrete surfaces. There are six hundred tons of Italian white marble on each floor.
