Now under construction on Toronto’s east end, the Waterfront Innovation Centre is a cutting- edge project that will lead the next wave of commercial office development by creating an environment that sustains and prioritizes creativity, collaboration and community, and is as useful for recreation as it is for production.
Part of the renewal of Toronto’s waterfront and an answer to the city’s rapidly evolving creative and technology sectors, the Waterfront Innovation Centre will include built-in workshops and lab spaces for productivity, as well as direct fibre connection that can achieve speeds as
fast as one terabyte per second. The centre’s smart design also includes sustainability goals, with green roofs and reflective high-albedo surfaces, multiple outdoor terraces for lounging, geothermal heating, purposeful solar orientation and reduced mechanical systems.
Upon completion, the Waterfront Innovation Centre will blend seamlessly into Toronto’s revitalized waterfront and is projected to create approximately 40,000 new jobs.
