​Size: 60,000 sf

Young & Rubicam Group (Y & R) is a well-known creative group consisting of 186 offices and 7,000 employees operating around the world. They practice a “best alone, better together” approach with their many creative partners. In Toronto, Y & R’s office facility at 60 Bloor Street West is combined, but separate, with one of its creative partners, Wunderman. The combined space covering four floors, was renewed and provided the firms with the opportunity to update their workplace images.

The total “in-situ” renovation consisted of 60,000 sf over three floors, with two distinctly separate design concepts and reception areas. MARANT was retained as the construction manager to develop a phasing program for the construction process. Swing space was made available in the building and employees were moved, in phases, into the swing space, so that the vacated space could be renovated.

The construction included a new exposed ceiling, polished concrete floors, “branded” elevator lobbies and upgraded base building washrooms, as well as kitchen and lunch room facilities.

“Working with MARANT was a terrific experience. They are extremely conscientious, efficient and well-organized.”
