Built in 1931 and formerly known as the Canada Permanent Building, 320 Bay St is an 18-storey office building located in the heart of downtown Toronto. This major restoration includes the base building renewal and upgrades to suites in the building to reposition it as a Class A office building.
The restoration has improved the quality and service of the space, while preserving the integrity of the structure’s history and architectural elements. Base building upgrades include washrooms from levels 2 to 18, the main lobby at 304 Bay St, the elevator cabs, and an end-of-trip facility in the basement. We were tasked to acknowledge and marry the materiality in the lobby at 304 Bay with the historical side by giving it a more contemporary feel to appeal to potential clients including tech businesses and major coworking brands.
