Corner the market on productivity

Not all office space is created equal. 16 York is designed to do much more than facilitate business, it is designed to enhance productivity with thoughtful features that improve comfort, efficiency and ultimately, the bottom line.

Raised flooring for greater flexibility

16 York features a raised flooring system for more convenient access to HVAC, telecomm and data cabling, permitting faster, less costly and easier reconfigurations that can result in significant cost savings.

Individual environmental control

Raised flooring permits individual air flow control through floor-mounted diffusers and which functions more quietly than typical overhead HVAC systems.

Floor to ceiling glazing

Low-E, double glazed windows envelop each office floor, providing ample daylight that reduces operational costs and increases employee comfort while providing views of the surrounding neighbourhood.
