Designed to LEED® Gold standards, the 20-storey West Tower offers 780,000 square feet of advanced laboratory and office space for lease. Each floor of the tower boasts advanced communications and information technology capabilities, plus expansive conference, meeting and collaboration facilities. The West Tower was built to house our more established companies, currently featuring the likes of PayPal, CCRM and JLABS.
Formerly the “College Wing” of the Toronto General Hospital, the Heritage Building underpinned some of the last century’s most significant medical breakthroughs: insulin, the artificial kidney and the pacemaker.
Today, the Heritage Building has been thoughtfully modernized – allowing the space to be used effectively while preserving its original architectural significance, including the four-storey brick façade.
It houses a combination of our growth-ready startups and established companies, chosen for their contribution to the MaRS community.
Both MaRS Commons and District 20 are located here and specifically designed to accommodate the growth needs of our startup clients, who are looking for offices that enable them to succeed.
MaRS Commons is a very bright, mostly open-concept space designed to support our Growth stage companies – who aren’t yet ready to lease full-scale offices. Amenities such as meeting rooms, kitchen space and technology are provided, so companies can focus on growing their businesses.
District 20 was also created to accommodate startups who have outgrown co-working space, but are not large enough for their own dedicated offices. This 6,000-square-foot space is broken into colour-coded, pod-like offices with shared common areas.
It meets the needs of companies that are in the five to 15-person headcount stage, giving them confidential, private spaces where they can build their own company culture, while still accessing all of the benefits of a communal startup community.
When laying out the District 20 space, emphasis was placed on having the right balance of open, collaborative and quiet areas for meetings or phone calls, as well as ensuring there was enough room to accommodate expanding teams.
The South Tower’s eight storeys offer 200,000 square feet of space and they have been divided into labs and offices for rent.
Located on the second and third floors, the MaRS Incubator provides furnished offices, labs, meeting rooms and kitchen space to emerging science and technology startups. Facilities include shared access to fridges, freezers, Milli-Q water purification, an ice machine, centrifuge, autoclave, and environmental rooms.
Princess Margaret Cancer Research Tower
The Princess Margaret Cancer Research Tower is a 15-storey building with more than 400,000 square feet of state-of-the-art wet labs for research organizations. One of Canada’s leading research hospitals, the University Health Network, maintains facilities here.
