TORONTO, Sept. 29 /CNW/ - Northern Lights Direct Response Television Inc., a leading brand-based agency offering production services in the United States and Canada has purchased a 20,000 square feet of gross Class B office in Toronto, Ontario. Ashlar Urban brokered the sale of 15 Duncan Street, between King and Adelaide Streets in the Financial Core. The property will become the new Northern Lights headquarters, and the company will occupy half of the building. The fully-leased property's current tenants include two law firms and a financial services firm. The transaction was reported at $4.425 million CDN.
