Event Summary

Toronto is home to one of the hottest office markets in the world, with vacancy rates as low as 1.9%.



Due to such low vacancy rates, landlords can effectively dictate rental rates.



Some think Toronto’s office market may have hit its peak, but developers disagree, with projects such as 80 Atlantic Ave, 620 King Street West, and 500 Lakeshore Boulevard West set to come online in 2019. The Coworking industry has taken advantage of the the tech boom. WeWork alone has five different locations and other Coworking companies have stepped on the gas in acquiring additional locations.



Toronto’s office boom has no end in sight, with more tenants and money flooding in by the day. Millenials will continue to change the workplace and commercial real estate leaders will make sure to be listening. Join us and our all star line up of industry experts as we dive into these topics and more!

  1. Toronto currently has one of the strongest office markets in North America, with availability at a record low of 1.9% and unemployment at an all time low. What economic factors are helping to drive this office boom and is it sustainable?
  2. According to a report by Cushman & Wakefield, rental rates for Class A office went up by 16.7% in 2018. Will such high rental rates force smaller companies to look outside of Toronto for rent relief?
  3. With almost 500,000 sf of office space coming online in 2019, you would think rents would dip but, almost all of the new office space is pre-leased. When will tenants finally see some rent relief?
  4. Many attribute Toronto’s office boom to the influx of tech companies. What amenities do these tech companies actually care about?
  5. What new office trends and designs are here to stay, and which will be forgotten about by next year?
