A home office? How about an office that’s like a home!

Ah, home sweet home! We’ve all heard that expression. It refers to all the creature comforts of your personal living space – be they in an apartment, condo, loft or house. But what about the amenities of an office space Toronto that are like a real home? In a perfect world, wouldn’t it be amazing to discover a Toronto office space for rent downtown that has all the relaxing comforts of home? Well, I have! For starters, I get free tea, coffee, filtered water, ice cubes and a weekday newspaper to start my day off right. I’m not concerned about the weather outside because my office for rent Toronto has automatically controlled heat and air conditioning. For peace and quiet in my own personal office space Toronto location, I simply close the door. Having convenient parking just minutes from my...

Using a Broker to Find Office Space for Rent Toronto

After hearing about a recent interaction with a Toronto office rent prospect by one of Telsec’s office coordinators, I had to do some research for myself. It seems the prospect was given a price by an independent office space broker that did not match the price given to them by the Telsec office coordinator. The prospect found that using a broker to find office space for rent Toronto in a business centre was very confusing. The prospect even told the office space coordinator the name of the website they had first contacted (that had Telsec’s photos on their site), but did not know it was Telsec until the office space coordinator contacted them. The prospect had already found the Telsec website and arranged a visit before they filled out the form on the broker’s website. I should first tell...

Watching the 2012 Olympic Games at Toronto Office Space

With the 2012 Olympic Games in London (which is 5 hours ahead of Toronto) people have realized that many of the live events will be broadcast here early in the day. Even some of the events that are being held in the evening, will be seen here in the afternoon. For people who work during the day, it will be difficult to watch some of the sports live. We decided to take a poll and asked if people planned on taking time off, working different hours to catch certain live events or if they would find a way to watch from work. A number of people said they would be watching while at work. So we asked those people an additional question. “How will you be watching the 2012 Olympics games at Toronto office space?” Before we tell you how people responded to the questions of “How will you be watching ...

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...
