transforming

Construction starts early 2017

Redevelopment Updates


With redevelopment comes change. Stay current with the latest news.

It’s officially spring time in Toronto and the beginning of construction is just around the corner. Construction to the exterior of Manulife Centre is set to begin in mid-April at the corner of Bloor and Balmuto Streets. As part of the construction barrier design, we will be including an art component. We asked artists and designers to show us what makes their Toronto better, using the Manulife Centre ampersand as inspiration. We’re excited to introduce Ampersand City!

This month, we said goodbye to More Than Words. At the same time, some of our retailers are moving to temporary spaces within Manulife Centre to help facilitate construction. Birks has closed their concourse entry but remain open on the ground level with an entrance off Bloor Street. The Bank of Montreal retail premise has relocated across from Indigo on the ground floor. BMO ATMs can now be found at the ground and concourse levels. Access to the concourse between Birks and Bonny’s via Bloor street will be closed for construction in late April. The spiral staircase at the main entrance of the Centre will be removed in June, access to the office tower will be available via escalators and elevators.

 

In case you missed it…

During construction some of your usual pathways and entrances to the building may also be rerouted. We will make it a priority to communicate with all our tenants during construction to minimize disruption. We hope that you are as excited as we are about the changes taking place at Manulife Centre.
