Southcore Financial Centre consists of three interconnected buildings: two office towers and a premium 4-star hotel. The complex spans a full block in Toronto’s downtown core, and is integrated into the PATH network, which provides direct access to Union Station and the city’s extensive below-ground amenities. Southcore Financial Centre is notable for its sustainability features, includinga rain water collection system and deep lake central cooling, and the three-storey podium that joins the buildings has a rooftop urbanforest
enlivened by native species.
The three buildings are certified LEED SC Gold.
