A New Way of Working

CBRE Canadian Headquarters
Toronto, Ontario, Canada

To support the rollout of CBRE’s Workplace360 transformation in its downtown Toronto headquarters, HOK designed a living lab that supports the company’s values and position as a leading provider of commercial real estate services.

Our design of CBRE’s Canadian headquarters office promotes communication and collaboration while supporting employee wellness.

Visitors entering the workplace are immersed in a five-star experience. The lobby signage and media wall reflect CBRE’s brand and convey a ‘corpitality’ feel, creating a welcoming atmosphere for employees and clients. An internal connecting staircase integrates business units while encouraging spontaneous collaboration.

A combination of open and enclosed spaces and technology-enabled mobility provides CBRE’s people with choices about how, when and where they want to work. The highly modular infrastructure is flexible to support changes over time.

The project is targeting LEED Gold certification. It also meets the design and construction principles of the WELL Building Standard, which rates seven categories of building performance: air, water, light, nourishment, fitness, comfort and mind.
