February 1, 2022 - Article on Portland Commons from today's Globe & Mail.
Some comments as introduction to the article. It is fairly superficial - while Carttera is mentioned as developer, it is actually a joint venture between the original property owner, Wolfecorp who brought Carttera to handle the project. Wolfecorp itself has an interesting history, with this property, along with the building at 49 Spadina (the Steele-Briggs building) having originally being acquired by Joseph Wolfe, the father of the current owners. To my knowledge, the Portland Commons property was never part of the Globe and Mail, or home to the Globe & Mail's headquarters as mentioned in the article.
Anyway - here is the article (The original article has a couple of pictures of renderings - I have not been able to figure out how to include them in this posting).
Portland Commons aims to attract tenants, workers with ‘healthy building’ designBuilding new offices to high environmental standards now a minimum expectation, says developerwww.theglobeandmail.com
Going to bring the renders forward:
