The announcement comes just two weeks after a Globe and Mail report claimed that the Seagate Building was under contract to the Ontario government.
The Ottawa office of Seagate was announced in January 2017 and will be the company’s first Ottawa-based facility.

Seagate is the second Canadian company to build a $1bn Ottawa building, after the $1,200 million Ottawa-headquartered firm Shaw Group announced a $2.6 billion facility in February 2018.
