The Oxford Way

Back in September 2017, Oxford Properties conducted a customer satisfaction and loyalty survey. Many clients took the time to let Oxford know whether they were meeting or exceeding service expectations. To celebrate the fantastic results Oxford have created a visual representation of this commitment via “The Oxford Way” video:

We love being part of WaterPark Place!

Here’s some events they’ve held in the building over the past year:

Go Back Through Toronto’s History Thanks To Side Walk Labs

, , , ,

Have you ever wondered what originally stood where your condo stands now? Well now you can find out.

Earlier last week Google Sidewalk Labs revealed their project ‘Old Toronto’ (OLDTO). Inspired by web applications developed in San Francisco and New York, the website maps more than 30,000 photographs from the City of Toronto Archives. Extremely user-friendly, to use the tool all you need to do is search for a location and then browse through the archived images in that area. See below to check out what the area where our building is located originally looked like:

In a statement released by Side Walk Labs they stated that they are also in the process of preparing OldTo for release as an open source tool, so local urban-tech enthusiasts can build on top of it. Engineers say they’re exploring additional features to add to the tool, including an aerial button that will “enable people to see how the city has changed from a birds-eye view”. Clicking on a photo will show any information contained in the description such as the title, date, conditions etc.

Try it out for yourself in the interactive map. (If you want to find us, we’re at 20 Bay Street)

If you’d like to work at such a historical location in Toronto, you can take a look at our available spaces.

Earth Day 2016 – April 22nd!

, , , , ,

Join us for Earth Day at work!

Come out to 20 Bay Street, WaterPark Place Atrium and Food Court for some Earth Day education and fun! Hope to see you there!

The movement continues. http://www.earthday.org/

We are now entering the 46th year of a movement that continues to inspire, challenge ideas, ignite passion, and motivate people to action.

In 1970, the year of our first Earth Day, the movement gave voice to an emerging consciousness, channeling human energy toward environmental issues. Forty-six years later, we continue to lead with groundbreaking ideas and by the power of our example.

And so it begins. Today. Right here and right now. Earth Day is more than just a single day — April 22, 2016. It’s bigger than attending a rally and taking a stand.

This Earth Day and beyond, let’s make big stuff happen. Let’s plant 7.8 billion trees for the Earth. Let’s divest from fossil fuels and make cities 100% renewable. Let’s take the momentum from the Paris Climate Summit and build on it.

Let’s start now. And let’s not stop.

 

The Scoop is out for April!

We boarded the Kajama at 5:30 p.m. in the humid summer air to the sweet voices of the Waterfront Singing Ambassadors…

The Rostie Group and all the tenants and friends who joined us enjoyed sipping refreshing drinks, sailing along the Queens Quay Harbourfront. The Toronto skyline never looked better from out on the lake. It is a view everyone –  Torontonians and tourists alike –  must experience.

The crew on the Kajama were exceptional, getting some of us to help raise the gigantic sails and singing while they worked!

Everyone was surprised when the ship was back in the harbour docking, had it been 2 hours already?!?

A great summer social for everyone, thank you Toronto Waterfront, Kajama crew and The Waterfront Singing Ambassadors for being such an amazing part of our work community!
