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. Look out for this art inside and outside the Centre, as well as for an online gallery of all the designs coming soon.

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.
