Housed in the Hudson Bay at the corner of Queen and Bay, the new location will take over two floors and the large floor plans will be broken into different “Neighbourhoods,” which will encourage unique experiences and target different types of events, work environments, and social interactions on varying scales.
“With the addition of WeWork Hudson’s Bay Queen Street alongside 357 Bay, we’re creating a campus-like ecosystem in the Bay Street Corridor of downtown Toronto,” said Dave McLaughlin, WeWork’s GM of Tri-State, Northeast, and Mid-Atlantic.
The new space will also pay homage to the tradition of Hudson’s Bay by featuring the brand’s iconic striped colours throughout the location.
The Townhall will serve as a flex space that looks onto Toronto City Hall, acting as an incubator space which is then open for use by the city.
There will also be nooks built against the windows, encouraging interaction between WeWork and adjoining retail space.
Visitors can enjoy the five large lounge spaces that will be housed across two floors.
While an official opening date has yet to be confirmed, the company is aiming to open the Hudson’s Bay location later this year.
