Buildings are the foundations of Cookie Clicker Classic. Buildings are items that gradually gain you more cookies for buying more buildings. Each building has an individual CpS (Cookies per Second) and increase in price each time you buy one. Cookie Clicker Classic Contains 9 buildings, including the Elder Pledge. Unlike in the newest version of Cookie Clicker, Buildings produces cookies every 5 seconds.
Each building's price is calculated with the following formula, rounded to the nearest integer:
- where M = number of that type of building currently owned.
Therefore, the cumulative price for N buildings is calculated as a finite geometric series:
|Name||Shop icon||Icon||Base Cost||Cookies/5 seconds||CpS||Description|
|Cursor||15||Without Elder Pledge = 1
With Elder Pledge = amount of cursors*1.5
|Without Elder Pledge = 0.2
With Elder Pledge = amount of cursors*0.3
|Autoclicks every 5 seconds.|
|Grandma||100||4+1(if you have at least 1 factory)+2(mine)+3(shipment)+4(alchemy lab)+5(portal)+6(time machine)+amount of portals*0.5(elder pledge)||0.8+0.2(if you have at least 1 factory)+0.4(mine)+0.6(shipment)+0.8(alchemy lab)+1(portal)+1.2(time machine)+amount of portals*0.1(elder pledge)||A nice grandma to bake more cookies.|
|Factory||500||20||4||Produces large quantities of cookies.|
|Mine||2,000||50||10||Mines out cookie dough and chocolate chips.|
|Shipment||7,000||100||20||Brings in fresh cookies from the cookie planet.|
|Alchemy Lab||50,000||500||100||Turns gold into cookies!|

|Elder Pledge||666,666||Puts and end to the Ancient's wrath, at least for a while.|

As of the 0.1251 update, when the Elder Pledge is purchased, Grandma output increases by +0.5 for each portal purchased. Each fully upgraded grandma produces cookies according to the following formula, rounded to the nearest integer:
