Still a few more big names yet to be announced too.
yea, will make some busier areas in the city. The library area now is kinda quiet but with Amazon and apple moving in should boost the area. I wonder if workers will use the stadium station more, it feels a bit closer than Granville does.

Costco moved its HQ from Laval to Ottawa.

CP Rail moved to Calgary from Montreal.

CAE flight simulators moved its HQ from Toronto to Montreal.

Alliance Atlantis Vivafilm (not sure if it still exists) moved its HQ from Toronto to Montreal.

Not sure if any of these are surprises though.

Good enough for me. Wasn't aware of any of these.

Yesterday, from the Globe:
"Toronto can’t build office towers fast enough

A decade ago, an office landlord might have gone into crisis mode upon learning a tenant as big as Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce was preparing to flee to a new development down the street. But these days, perhaps nothing says more about demand for office space in downtown Toronto than QuadReal Property Group’s response to precisely that scenario.

I'm pretty sure Oxford at 161 Bay and H&R at Atrium on Bay are losing more square footage from CIBC than Commerce Court is. Also seems odd to highlight the development that is probably least likely to happen as the big indicator of the hot office market.
