About the Project

Constructed on a remediated 2.4 acre site and the catalyst for redevelopment of Toronto’s east waterfront, Corus Quay is the embodiment of an interactive and porous facility that fosters new business and recreational growth. The crisp, modern design of the 531,920 square foot, eight-storey, glass clad building was awarded NAIOP’s “Office Development of the Year” and was the forerunner to the development of two parks, a community college and large residential and office developments. Home to Corus Entertainment, the building’s five-storey glazed atrium forms a vibrant hub connecting the ground-floor radio stations, large reception area and multiple sliding doors that open performance stages onto the waterfront to the South and Sugar Beach Park to the west. Beyond form, the atrium unites efficient but large floor plates while maximizing daylight penetration and recycling air through a five-storey bio-wall. Corus Quay is designed to LEED Gold Certification standards, utilizing 41% less water and 30% less energy than a conventional building of the same size.
