This has been a big year for iQ – not only have we expanded to new territory here in Toronto, but we’ve also established our first location on the West coast, in the bustling heart of downtown Vancouver. As part of our mission to provide excellence in the shared office experience, our new locations feature everything that iQ has always made available to our members: top quality design and flexible workspaces in thriving and inspiring locations.
Creative and modern office spaces at 545 King Street West
Our newest acquisition is BrightLane at 545 King Street West. These four floors provide 28,000 sq ft of brightly lit, creatively designed space in the centre of the King West neighbourhood. Featuring shared office and coworking spaces with a range of office and desk configurations, and multiple meeting and conference rooms, members are also provided access to a large lounge and event space, media room for presentations, indoor and outdoor bike storage, as well as a landscaped rooftop terrace for outdoor working or BBQ’ing.
Luxury office spaces in 150 King West
Gorgeous, modern, and committed to green building practices, 150 King Street West presented an ideal space to expand our downtown footprint. Located in the heart of Toronto’s financial district, we’ve finalized a 36,000 sq ft lease for two full floors, featuring 18-foot vaulted ceilings, and over 7,500 sq ft of beautiful private outdoor space.
Located on the corner of King and York, this location provides direct underground access to the TTC Subway and PATH systems as well as the King Streetcar at the front door. In addition to the private iQ member privileges and amenities, this location offers an elegant and spacious lobby, extensive shower and steam room facilities, as well as access to numerous retail and food services on site. We’ll be starting construction later this year, with the first tenants set to move in as of Spring, 2018.
Flexible workspaces at the Royal Centre, Vancouver
Our goal for Vancouver is to offer the same experience as our offices in Toronto: unique, inspiring, flexible workspaces in accessible, amenity-rich locations. We’ve accomplished this with our new space on the 21st floor of the iconic Royal Centre at West Georgia and Burrard Streets. Featuring direct covered connections to the Skytrain, we’ve outfitted this 14,000 sq ft space with a mix of office sizes, including private offices, coworking spaces, and dedicated desks. Members enjoy fully adjustable sit-or-stand desks, individual climate controlled offices, full kitchenette and contemporary furnishings throughout the facility.
Should your business take you to the vibrant city of Vancouver, you’ll get the same iQ experience with the Rocky Mountains, Vancouver Harbour and city skyline as your backdrop.
No matter where we go, we’re committed to creating unique and inspired work experiences for everyone who walks into an iQ office space. As always, these new locations feature fully furnished workspaces that can be personalized by iQ members, with a comprehensive and constantly evolving roster of amenities supported by friendly and attentive on-site staff.
Our facilities provide fully equipped meeting and conference rooms, large members’ lounges with kitchens, drinks and snack bars, secure internet and Wi-Fi connectivity, 24/7 accessibility, security, printing and communications services and more. All of our properties are centrally located, making them easily accessible to public transportation, restaurants, hotels and other amenities.
