The Toronto-Dominion Centre (TD Centre) has become Canada’s first existing building to achieve Wired Certification. Cadillac Fairview announced that TD Centre received Platinum Wired Certification, the highest possible ranking, in all six of its towers.
Operated by WiredScore, Wired Certification is the internationally recognized digital connectivity ratings system for commercial real estate that helps landlords design and promote their buildings’ digital connectivity to tenants.
“Toronto-Dominion Centre is proud to be Canada’s first existing building to achieve Wired Certification,” says David Hoffman, general manager of TD Centre. “We earned this certification through our ongoing investments in innovative technology and connectivity, as part of our commitment to delivering significant value for our tenants and providing the ultimate environment for the productivity and competitiveness of their businesses.”
Cadillac Fairview says earning Platinum Wired Certification attests to TD Centre being best-in-class across all features of connectivity that matter most to tenants: number and quality of internet service providers, redundancy and resiliency of telecom infrastructure, ease of installation and capacity to readily support new telecom services.
“The fact that every building at the TD Centre has achieved Platinum Wired Certification, the highest standard we rate for, confirms that today’s tenants are well served in terms of digital infrastructure and the property is prepared to meet the digital needs of tenants 10 or 20 years down the line,” says Phil Kanfer, North American director of business development for WiredScore.
The certification show that all six towers can support current and future tenants with the most demanding technology requirements.
“With the growing demand for digital connectivity in the workplace, tenants expect uninterrupted internet connectivity, consistent cell service, and reliable wi-fi to support a flexible workforce, open office plans, high levels of streaming data and large files,” adds Hoffman. “Tenants need to know that the environment is secure and can be supported, even in the event of a power outage. Platinum Wired Certification demonstrates that Toronto-Dominion Centre’s digital infrastructure can offer all of this, and more.”
