25 York Street: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
In the competitive world of commercial real estate, why would an owner pursue sustainable design and its increased initial costs? For many developers, including the owner of 25 York Street in Toronto, the question is “why not”? High performing buildings often lease space faster and benefit owners and tenants in other ways. Building occupants at 25 York enjoy personal control of their environment through underfloor air diffusers, an abundance of daylight, rooftop garden patios and exterior views from 90% of the occupied spaces. Built on abandoned railway lands in the heart of downtown, the site provides access to alternative transportation and major attractions.
