MAP

Corus Quay is the first new building of Toronto’s waterfront redevelopment. The eight-storey glass-clad building completed in September 2010 is designed with restraint, minimalism and simplicity to showcase the broadcast activities of Corus Entertainment within. Embracing its waterfront context on a remediated brownfield site and adjacent to Sugar Beach and a promenade, Corus Quay has achieved LEED Gold Certification with sustainable features including a four-storey biofilter, green roofs and rainwater recycling.

The building’s scheme is a series of geometries with upper floors set back and a large glazed atrium that drives daylight deep inside. Large doors open onto the lake, furthering the connection with the public space.
