Oxford Properties Turning Green Into Platinum RBC WaterPark Place to Be First LEED Platinum Office Tower in Toronto
"We are proud that RBC WaterPark Place will be Toronto's first LEED Platinum office tower, and of the commitment that RBC, Oxford and CPPIB have collectively made in delivering a top tier environmental and energy efficient building," said Linda Mantia, senior vice-president, Enterprise Services, RBC. "The road to LEED Platinum is about achieving the highest environmental standards while at the same time providing the best in class office space and efficiency for our team who will enjoy working in this building."
The building will be RBC's new national headquarters for its Canadian Banking business. RBC WaterPark Place is located between Bay and York Streets on the north side of Queens Quay Boulevard. Designed by WZMH Architects and constructed by Ellis Don, the development will be connected to the PATH system by a new elevated enclosed pedestrian bridge linked directly to the Air Canada Centre and Union Station.
RBC WaterPark Place construction is scheduled for completion in Q3 2014. In addition to the 575,000 square feet that RBC will occupy, there is 355,000 square feet being made available for other tenants in the high rise portion of the structure.
