Closure of Queen and Spadina will have little effect on Office Space Toronto clients

Downtown Toronto commuters are anticipating two chaotic weeks of slowdowns, as the city shuts down one of the busiest intersections at Queen Street West and Spadina for transit rail re-construction and maintenance Monday morning. With the intersection being shut down to traffic in all directions for the next two weeks, many commuters are trying to find alternative routes and bypasses of the intersection. But the closure  of Queen and Spadina will have little effect on office space Toronto clients, because it is very easy for them to avoid that area. The Streetcar track replacement work that began Monday is in anticipation of the arrival of new low-floor streetcars in 2014. Some tweeters and bloggers are already calling the closure of this arterial intersection “Carmageddon TO.” Brad Ross, ...

Our Office Space for Rent Toronto is compared to Toronto Fringe Festival

Yes, I actually heard one of our office space tenants mention how  our office space for rent Toronto is compared to Toronto Fringe Festival. It was not because of being in the same business, but how unique Telsec’s approach is to Toronto office rentals. The term fringe theatre is theatre that is not of the mainstream. Telsec approaches rental offices in Toronto with solutions that are sometimes not considered mainstream office space. In places like London, England, “the Fringe” is the term that is given to small-scale theatres, many of them located above pubs, and can be called the equivalent to New York’s Off-Broadway or Off-Off-Broadway theatres. Because Telsec is located downtown (not in the financial core of the city) but on the fringes of the core, is one way our office space for rent...

Happy Canada Day from office space for rent Toronto

In deciding how to say Happy Canada Day from office space for rent Toronto, this writer did not know if he should just talk about office space rental Toronto and how it is open today or talk about Canada Day itself. I decided to mix a bit of both. First let me share with you how Wikipedia describes Canada Day: “Canada Day (French: Fête du Canada) is the national day of Canada, a federal statutory holiday celebrating the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the British North America Act, 1867 (today called the Constitution Act, 1867, in Canada), which united three colonies into a single country called Canada within the British Empire. Originally called Dominion Day (French: Le Jour de la Confédération), the name was changed in 1982, the year the Canada Act was passed. Canada Day ob...

Climate Controlled Office Space Toronto

It is days like today that I am so happy to have climate controlled office rental Toronto. The temperatures outside are almost in the 30’s and the humidity makes it feel like it is in the 40’s, but the temperature in my office space for rent Toronto is comfortable and easy to work with. Because of the design and recent upgrades of the Toronto Star Building, keeping the office space cool is not as hard as it is for other downtown Toronto office towers. Often when the nice weather arrives, there are no line-ups at the fourth floor cafeteria (now called Cafe on 4), as people decide to venture outside for lunch at the many hot dog carts and chip trucks that are found along Queens Quay. But today with all the heat and humidity warnings, I had to line up at noon to get my lunch. It seems that ma...

The lake view from office space for rent Toronto is changing

For over 32 years the lake view from Telsec’s office space for rent Toronto has been the Toronto harbour and Lake Ontario. That is not changing. What is changing from the Toronto office space for rent view is the parking lot you would look down at is now under development. The development will not be tall enough or west enough to obscure the south view of the Toronto harbour, the Toronto islands and Lake Ontario. Today it was announced that a landmark that is also included in the lake view from office space for rent Toronto has been closed. Toronto Port Authority rescinded Captain John’s lease for the watery slip at the foot of Yonge St. and told the owner “Captain” John Letnik that he has until July 27 to remove the ship and its signs. Many bloggers are speculating that the ships tired lo...

Being an Entrepreneur is Like Walking a Tightrope Across Niagara Falls

Watching Nik Wallenda cross Niagara Falls on a tightrope the width of 3 pennies makes one reflect on the challenges of running your own business and the risks that are involved. Sometimes being an entrepreneur is like walking a tightrope across Niagara Falls. It may not be as dangerous as the walk that Nik Wallenda took, but it can be almost as scary. Many of the people who rent office space Toronto are entrepreneurs who have built their business from the ground up and have shouldered the risks of starting a business on their own, without a safety net. Not having a safety net does not mean they have not taken precautions to be safer. The fact that they rent Toronto office space without a lease is just one sign that they are cautious about signing a long-term lease that would cost them lots...

Office space Toronto tech support

With traditional office space Toronto, you have to set up your internal computer network and then find an Internet service provider to bring in the signal. This sounds easy, but sometimes it does not work the way you want it to work. You want your office space Toronto tech support from one source – not two or three. A new Toronto office space client told us a reason they moved to our office business centre and the reason was not uncommon. They had a traditional office space in a downtown office building, but had many technical problems that their installers and ISP (Internet service provider) could not fix. The network installers said that the problem was with the ISP and the ISP said the problem with the network guys. When they moved to Telsec, they loved that the office space Toronto tec...

Why Business Centre Is No Longer A Bad Word

I recently had lunch with an old friend who currently resides in Vancouver, he also has an apartment in Toronto when he visits family here. We were talking about him having two office spaces, one Toronto office space and another Vancouver office space. His office space in Vancouver is a private office, but he also has a semi-private office space in Toronto that he uses when he is here. As a business consultant he helps large business to improve their operations, but he also helps them find ways of diversifying. He told me of a recent lecture he gave at a conference where he told conference attendees “why business centre is no longer a bad word”. His lecture about why business centre is no longer a bad word came about when one of his clients was looking to open a branch office i...

A Good Business Address is Important

Before I talk about why a good business address is important, I have to tell you about what a Google search brought up about my new home. When I did a Google search of my new home address, I found that the house was used as an art project a number of years back. It seems that a previous owner of the house had invited a number of artists to come into the house and do various art installations. Some of the photos and videos I found online showed what look like a completely different interior of the house. One video even showed a mural of a singing flower that has since been painted over. But if you look closely at the wall under different lighting conditions, you can make out some of the lines of the mural. This started me thinking of addresses and how people see them. For many years small a...

Traffic was crazy this weekend near my downtown Toronto office space

On both Saturday and Sunday I had to meet a few clients only to find that Traffic was crazy this weekend near my downtown Toronto office space. Getting to my office space downtown was not a problem on Saturday, but trying to give my client a lift back uptown was a nightmare. I left the Toronto Star Building around 6:30 pm heading up Yonge Street. I was unaware that only 10 minutes earlier there had been a shooting at the Toronto Eaton Centre. Traffic was a mess on Yonge, so I decided to try Bay Street – it too was full of traffic. It was odd that there would be that much traffic at 6:30 pm especially since the Blue Jay game had ended a few hours before. It was not until I reached Richmond Street that I became aware of what had happened by tuning to CBC Radio One. I turned onto Richmond and...
