Situated on the shores of Lake Ontario in Toronto’s East Bayfront community, Corus Quay is the 500,000 sf home of Corus Entertainment. Completed in 2010, the HQ amalgamated 11 locations from across Toronto's downtown into the first completed building at the East Bayfront precinct. The design draws on its waterfront location and brings the 70+ Corus brands together as a team in a LEED CI Gold-targeted interior, within a LEED Gold-targeted building in a LEED ND Neighbourhood. Upon completion, Corus Quay became North America’s most advanced media building of its kind and Toronto’s smartest building.
Corus Quay brings the 1,100 staff of Corus together for the first time in an open office environment with many collaboration and social spaces, including a five-storey atrium with a three-storey slide and lounge atop two tv studios. The facility contains radio and performance studios open to the public as well as numerous edit and mix production facilities and technology processing rooms, transforming the way in which Corus staff work.
In the words of John Cassaday, Corus's founding CEO: "This building represents a cultural shift. It’s all about fun."
