The Empire Life Insurance Company (Empire Life) has been in its downtown location for 87 years, but the historic building at 259 King Street East has now been sold.

In a media release, Empire Life said it has signed an agreement to sell its corporate head office property in Kingston to local developer Jay Patry Enterprises LLC.

The sale closes in mid-2024, Empire Life noted, and after the sale, the company will continue to use the premises as its corporate head office for a period of time while it looks for other office space to lease in Kingston that is more suited to its needs.

“Empire Life is committed to our head office staying in Kingston,” said Mark Sylvia, President and CEO of Empire Life. “Kingston has been home to our head office since 1936 and it’s where we plan to stay. This transition will allow us to explore a more suitable workspace for our employees and the future of work.”
