The Canberra Times made the move to its Fyshwick headquarters on this day in 1987.
With its "distinctive architecture", the building was, and still is, "an imposing entrance into Fyshwick".
Sixty years of stories came to an end for the flagship Braddon office, after the decision was made to bring all the paper's divisions into one building.
The switch made for a "larger and more efficient head office for the company in keeping with its role as the publisher of a quality metropolitan daily newspaper with a significant national voice".
State-of-the-art computer systems were installed throughout the building, allowing for comprehensive stock-exchange material to be included in print and allowing reporters to file stories from outside of Canberra.
New plate-making technology was also established, meaning text in print was clearer, and pictures higher resolution.
Design of the building reflected the influence of colonial architecture, breaking the trend of moving to "futuristic glass and concrete".
The site initially featured a swimming pool, tennis court and gymnasium.
The general manager of The Times' publisher in 1987 said "the current expansion will allow The Canberra Times and The Canberra Chronicle to cater for the needs of the Canberra community into the 21st century".
