A downtown Toronto office space for rent just minutes from where the action is!

A story in the Feb. 9th Metro Toronto News revealed a startling fact from the recently released 2011 Census. A small downtown pocket from Lake Ontario north to Front St., west to Bathurst St. and east to Spadina Ave. has seen explosive growth in the last several years. In 2006, the population in that area was 1,106. It is now 5,911 – a 400%-plus increase and more than triple the average population density (per square kilometre) for the rest of the city, the article concluded. A similar influx of people is now occurring in the Bay St./Yonge St. area around Lake Shore Blvd. where several new condos have been built. But where are all these people working? Well, many are remaining downtown! And one of the most convenient options in downtown Toronto office space for rent (commercial office spac...

As March Break is ending the March Madness is just getting started at Telsec Toronto office space, but not in the way you may be thinking.

The biggest interest in NCAA Basketball comes from gamblers. I am told that more bets are place on March Madness, Sweet Sixteen and Final Four games than any professional sport championships. Telsec does not allow any gambling at its downtown Toronto office space, ...

Co-Working Clients Can Save Money on Airlines and Taxis When they ask Staff Advice

A few days ago, a Co-working client asked a Telsec administrative staff member for a reference to a preferred limo service from Pearson International Airport.  They told the staff member that they were putting together an Itinerary for a customer who would be visiting from Chicago. The quick thinking coworking Toronto office staff, reminded the client that they could save them and their customer a great deal of money and hassles if they skipped Pearson International Airport and flew via Porter Airlines directly to the Billy Bishop Toronto Island Airport. The cost of the ticket and landing taxes would save them a great deal of money. The office space Toronto staff also mentioned that the cost of the taxi from the Toronto Island Airport to the Telsec co-working office space at 1 Yonge Street...

So what is a virtual office and what is telecommuting?

Many experts say that excessive traffic congestion on roads and surging infrastructure costs in almost all the major business cities of the world are forcing companies to adopt “virtual office” models in order to telecommute to work. So what is a virtual office Toronto and what is telecommuting? According to Wikipedia “A virtual office is a combination of off-site live communication and address services that allows users to reduce traditional office costs while maintaining business professionalism. Frequently the term is confused with ‘office business centers’ or ‘executive suites’ which demand a conventional lease, whereas a true virtual office does not require that expense.” One problem with the Wikipedia explanation is that the author of the Wiki is mistakenly tr...

Avoid the “matchbox mentality” when seeking a Toronto office space for rent

You buy a bag of potato chips, pop it open, and half of what comes out is air! You purchase the same food items for the same amount of money and the portions are smaller. That same shrinking value for your dollar is happening in real estate too. Many of the condominiums rising in Toronto’s downtown core are a prime example. Yes, the buildings are replete with amenities, but the units themselves are getting smaller and smaller in terms of square footage when compared to older buildings that are just as elegant. This “matchbox mentality” is occurring in many commercial office space for rent Toronto buildings too – but NOT in ALL Toronto office space for rent locations! For example, many office space for rent Toronto landlords are scrambling to meet the needs of an ever-more-demanding busines...

How much PROFITABLE time do you spend in your Toronto office space each week?

Here are some surprising facts from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada. Canadians are actually spending less time working! In 2010, employed Canadians were working fewer hours on average each week compared to three decades earlier. Canadians worked 36.2 hours per week on average which was down from 38 in 1976. This seems incredible because many groups, especially self-employed people renting Toronto office space, are constantly busy and under tremendous stress just to keep their heads above water in this flat economy. This includes those who have a Toronto home office set-up – or who work out of a Toronto commercial office space, Toronto executive office space building, small Toronto office space business centre or who use Toronto shared office space for a landing office (ideal ...

Kung hei fat choi From Telsec 农历新年

As I was driving into my Toronto office space this morning, I heard a radio announcer trying to say Kung hei fat choi, but his pronunciation sounded a little off, it sounded like he was saying “Gung Hei Fat Choy “. So I asked one of the Mandarin speaking office space Toronto clients what the proper pronunciation was. He told me that neither was the Mandarin way of saying Happy New Year (not an exact translation). It seems that  “Xin Nien Kwai Le” is the Mandarin way. He went on to tell me that his wife is from the Philipines and her family is from the Fujian province of China, where they speak a Chinese-Filipinos dialect called Hokkien. The Chinese-Filipinos say Kiong Hee Huat Tsai. He also informed me that much to many North Americans’ dismay, Kung hei fat choi (in Cantonese), Xin N...

Why I chose my Toronto office space for rent at Telsec

A few weeks ago, I was overheard telling a friend why I chose my Toronto office space for rent at Telsec Business Centres on the 18th floor of the Toronto Star Building at 1 Yonge Street. The Telsec staffer who heard me suggested that I write this guest blog. So that got me thinking back to 1989 when I first made my decision that the best Toronto office space for rent would be at Telsec.I used to work out of an apartment near the Bloor/Jarvis area. It was a big enough space, but eventually the corner I was using began to grow and grow. Soon, it took over the entire apartment to such an extent that it didn’t feel like a real home any more – just a place of business that happened to have a fridge and a TV. So I started to look at the best office for rent Torontocould possibly offer. I’m a wr...
