For the past three years Cintas has scoured Canadian restaurants and public facilities for its Best Restroom award, but they have not searched out Canada’s Best office space Restroom. You would be surprised how many elegant restrooms that can be found in some office spaces. Telsec Business Centres Inc. has some of the nicest and greenest restrooms in Toronto, but not just compared to other office spaces. A few years ago the office space Toronto restrooms at Telsec underwent a major renovation that not only beautified them, but it also included some green features.

The sinks were replaced with a single glass shelf that stretched the length of the restroom and the entire wall. Over the sink area are two large mirrors that fill most of the wall. The faucets are […]

While Toronto’s Harbourfront has been developing for many years, it has only been in the past few years that developers have started looking at the Eastern Port Lands. It began when Toronto Port Lands Company (TPLC) decided to develop the first building directly on Toronto’s waterfront to achieve LEED certification. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification consists of a suite of rating systems for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings, homes and neighborhoods.

The primary tenant has still not been announced. Most suspect that it will be a company looking for a building with not only the cool address, […]
