On time, on budget completion for first of three LEED®-certified buildings at The Exchange business campus in Waterloo advanced technology triangle, Ontario

The first of three 2-storey 67,360 s.f. buildings has been completed for The Exchange business office 10-acre campus at 630 Weber Street in the heart of the Waterloo Region advanced technology triangle. Located one hour west of Toronto, with ready access to Highway 401, three Canada-US border crossings, national railroads, and both Waterloo and Toronto Pearson International Airports, The Exchange offers the only new Class A purpose-built office facilities in the area.

“The Exchange provides modern office premises that serve the technological, productivity, sustainability and environmental requirements of forward-thinking business tenants”, said Bill Cooper Jr, Cooper’s Vice President Real Estate Development. “From the hi-speed fibre optic network to 8 watts clean PSF and LEED green initiatives, everything is geared towards high efficiency, low operating cost, and an employee-friendly work environment.”

With space divisible down to 4,210 s.f. and 34,000 floor plates, the open, compact core promotes work-space flexibility and easy sight lines, and large perimeter windows bring in plenty of natural light.

Location is a key factor in the appeal of The Exchange, said Cooper. “This is Canada’s most cost-effective business city. Waterloo Region is a globally recognized advanced technology cluster, with Canada’s highest concentration of manufacturing activity, one of Canada’s largest insurance industry clusters, 150 research centres, and leading economic sectors in high tech, advanced manufacturing, automotive, and business services.”

2.7 million people live within a 45-minute drive of Waterloo Region’s exceptional business infrastructure. Conestoga College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning and Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier and nearby Guelph universities host 50,000 post-secondary students annually. University of Waterloo has the largest co-operative education program in the world. Wilfrid Laurier has one of Canada’s largest business schools.

Cooper identified free parking, landscaped courtyard, covered outdoor-meeting space, 24-hour access and responsive property management as additional features “Every effort has been made to provide a state-of-the industry, tenant-centric business address. In this regard, we’ve enjoyed excellent support from Communitech Canada.”
