If you have ever worked on a beach before, you know that having an amazing view can be awe-inspiring and get those creative juices flowing. The views from Team Space 103 are expansive, overlooking the recently completed Waterfront renewal, mentioned by The New York Times as one of the top places to explore in Toronto (which has been ranked 7th best city to visit in 2016!). This summer will be humming with excitement right outside your new workspace. You can commute on your bike along the shore, have a picnic lunch in the gardens by the waterfront and catch a Blue Jays game after work, with the Rogers centre and Union station a 5 minute walk away. The diverse and liveliest parts of the city are at your fingertips!

Come and see for yourself what Toronto’s thriving South Core has to offer. We promise you won’t be disappointed!

Spring is in the Air!

Hello Spring!!!

March 20th marks the official start of Spring, which means Summer on the Waterfront is just around the corner too!

With Spring, comes patio season! The Rostie Group had a great time on St Patrick’s Day at our Waterfront work community pub the WaterMark Irish Pub and we are looking forward to hitting  The Miller Tavern, our go-to spot for after work fun.

On March 19th, 2016 the Beaver Tails Pastry Restaurant opened up right on the water! This is going to be a hot and delicious spot to stop while cruising down Queens Quay this Spring. If you’ve never tried a Beaver Tail before, put this at the top of your list!

Throwback Thursday to the 90’s!

The Nineties 959

Do you remember the 90’s?

If you know what Seinfeld, VCR’s, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, flip phones, Tamagotchi’s or Beanie Babies are, then most likely you lived through the 90’s.

In 1991…

This is what the Apple logo looked like

Brad Pitt finally got his big break in one of that year’s biggest hits: Thelma & Louise

bradpitt thelma louise

The release of Nirvana’s Nevermind signified the start of the Grunge era that would dominate the music scene up to the mid-90’s (We all know what the cover looks like)

The Internet is made available for unrestricted commercial use and the number of computers on the net reaches 1 million (today there are 3.17 billion people online)

1991internet

 

1991 is when The Rostie Group was founded to provide businesses and start-ups with the option of smaller, more manageable space. There were 2 locations, one near the Pearson airport as well as downtown Toronto.

Shared workspaces were called ‘hot desks’ instead of ‘coworking’ and boardrooms looked like this:

Believe it or not, The Rostie Group prices were higher in 1991 than they are today!

1991AD

This marketing poster was the first advertisement for The Rostie Group. We still have the same view, and the same phone number. Pretty sure that guy does not work here anymore though.

The Rostie Group office spaces now start at $350. The ‘Corporate Identity Plan’ is now a ‘Virtual Office’ for remote workers and plans are only $69!

Since it is Throwback Thursday, here is one more of The Rostie Group 90’s Reception, one from the 2000’s and finally from today!

There are still friendly fish tanks around the centre, but we have gotten rid of those amazing white leather couches and dark wood. Are the 90’s back in style yet?!
