The Sir Richards Squires Building is the tallest in Corner Brook at 133 feet. The high-rise seems even taller because of its elevated position on Mount Bernard Avenue overlooking the city. Inside are a public library, government offices and the Newfoundland & Labrador Provincial and Supreme Courts. The namesake is Richard Squires. He was the prime minister of Newfoundland from 1919 to 1923 and again in 1928 to 1932.
