Telus Tower Office Bldg. 25 York St.
Completion: November 01, 2009
Total Construction Value: $250,000,000
Size: 780,000 sq. ft.
Telus Tower is located in the heart of downtown Toronto, directly west of the Air Canada Centre. The 30-storey building, completed in 2009, has three levels of underground parking and 780,000 square feet of premium office space. Telus occupies 60% of the space, including the two-storey podium, conference centre, and wellness facility.
- Air distribution and cooling are delivered through a raised floor system within the office spaces.
- Heating is provided by perimeter wallfin radiation.
- The HVAC services comprise separate low-rise and high-rise systems, each with its own mechanical room: one in the below-grade parking area and one at the penthouse level. This highly efficient mechanical design helped the project achieve LEED Gold certification.
Material- and equipment-handling strategies were paramount given the downtown “postage stamp” footprint of the building.
