14-Acre Master Planned Community Coming to Toronto’s Waterfront
A sprawling 14-acre mixed-use community is coming to Toronto’s waterfront. Located at 300 Queen’s Quay East, the development is expected to transform Toronto’s waterfront.
Named The Bend, the development will have it all — residential, office, retail, entertainment, and even cultural space — spread across 2.5 million-sq.ft.
The Bend will form an important part of the significant and ongoing investment across Toronto’s waterfront, which many creative and tech businesses call home.
A portion of the development will be dedicated to office space, which is being leased out by Avison Young. The office component will span approximately 217,000-sq.ft in a building bounded by Lake Shore Boulevard East, (future) Trinity Street, (future) Queens Quay East, and New Cherry Street (under construction).
“The office at 300 Queens Quay East is located in the most anticipated community on Toronto’s waterfront,” says Alfredo Romano, President at Castlepoint Numa and Partner at 3C Lakeshore Inc. “We’re leading with a healthy, flexible and sustainable opportunity for today’s workforce.”
The 11-storey office building will feature indoor and outdoor work and social spaces with over 14,000-sq.ft of terrace amenities, including a green roof and rooftop deck. There will also be a heavy focus on sustainability, and the building is set to be a LEED Gold candidate once complete.
“Office space at 300 Queens Quay East will serve as an important connector to the heart of Toronto’s financial district – expanding not only upon the downtown business core but also upon the existing beauty of the city’s thriving waterfront,” says Joe Almeida, Avison Young’s Managing Director and Principal, Toronto.
Tenants will enjoy a private shuttle from and to Union Station, as well as access via the express King streetcar and two upcoming LRT routes.
For drivers, the site is conveniently accessible to the Don Valley Parkway, Gardiner Expressway, and Lakeshore Boulevard. The site is also connected to East Bayfront, St. Lawrence Market, Corktown and the Distillery District, as well as the Waterfront Promenade and Martin Goodman Trail.
