So far only RBC has opened a new office in South Core.

CIBC will be the second bank.

There is not much real estate left within South Core to develop for the remaining 3 banks to move their HQ to newer buildings.

Maybe 16 York could be taken by the remaining 3 banks.

Didn't we read a little while ago that TD Centre was largely empty? If so, that would leave just Bank of Montreal and Scotiabank. Southcore is largely built out but there are those spots on Front west of the Royal York. There are 2 office towers proposed and also the old Oxford casino site although it seems that a tech accelerator is going in the current structure.

What an extraordinary news .
I've been waiting for this moment since many months.
I am so relieved to see it will become a reality.

a lot of the big banks long outgrew their headquarters. RBC has a massive presence all over the city. Their new building in southcore is probably less than 1/10th of their overall footprint.

CIBC is the first one to truly consolidate most of its space into a single complex again. They are also the smallest of the big 5.


TD centre is certianly not empty. The downtown core has a vacancy rate of around 4% right now, there is essentially no space available anywhere.

Thanks for the information. So TD Centre is full of TD workers or largely replaced with workers of other firms? If other banks want to consolidate in one complex we might end up with a few more like Bay Park Centre.

Regarding RBC I can't say that I like any of their new digs. None of them come close to Royal Bank Plaza although it's likely not as modern inside as say RBC Centre or 88 Queens Quay.

So i hope that Union center ,30 Bay and 160 Front will be leased by other banks or big corporations.
Those 3 tower will be a nice addition to our skyline.

I sure hope the don't stick an unmodified CIBC logo on there like shown in the picture because that really clashes with the architecture. If they want a logo, it should be a modified version in perhaps a silvery tone to blend in better.

I've never liked the 'new' CIBC logo. The old symbol was better imo:

I agree, that old logo looks much better, it would look fantastic on top of the Bay Park Centre. The current one they have had since 2003 looks pretty generic. Even the one they had in the 90s (between the nice one and the modern one) looked better than that.

This will be the first decent office tower to rise since TD Canada Trust went up in 1990. About time!

Cant stand that goofy antenna atop that building. Bay Adelaide and RBC are better office towers in my opinion.

I think 100 Adelaide turned out really nice.

It's on the small side but I do like that office building.

TD Canada Trust is a product of its era. It's not exactly my cup of tea but at least it's interesting. I can't say that for either Bay-Adelaide or RBC. They couldn't get more pedestrian if they tried.
