Wasn't the original rumour that Amazon was going to be the lead tenant for 11 Bay?
Yes I also heard 11 Bay (also QuadReal) was being eyed by Amazon. The amazing podium terraces have big potential for employee amenities but maybe the waterfront location could be a bit too far from Union Station? (see quote below). Maybe Union Centre's proximity/connections to Union Station are strong selling point.
"QuadReal is also seeking or has obtained BOMA Platinum, a Fitwel three-star rating and 99 in Walkscore. The front door is 180 metres from Union Station."
