LEED Leadership in Toronto

What do you get when you combine a world class developer (Oxford) with a world class pension fund (OMERS) that owns that same developer on an office building project? Exquisite design and double LEED certification.

EY Tower in Toronto achieved LEED® Core & Shell Platinum certification (for construction of the building), and OMERS & Oxford’s head offices within the building achieved LEED® for Commercial Interiors Gold certification (for design and construction of their space).

The project brought Oxford’s commitment of connecting people to exceptional places to life. EY Tower offers best in class customer comfort, striking architecture, and industry leading smart sustainability practices – such as ultra-high efficiency central boiler plant, Enwave Deep Lake Cooling, full building LED lighting, daylight and motion sensors, solar shading through exterior fins, and real-time air quality monitoring.

The building also offers occupants leading wellbeing features, including: shared indoor/outdoor spaces, wellness rooms, automatic sit-stand desks, diverse working areas, complimentary healthy food in kitchenettes, bike lockers, shower facilities, and accessible stairwells with motivational murals to encourage use.
