Case study

151 Front St - Major upgrades propel building into new era

As a result of the local market’s high demand for telecommunication space, TrizecHahn Office Properties Ltd. chose to convert its 300,000 s.f.  building at 151 Front Street West to a Class “A” telecommunications hotel carrier. To support tenants’ installation of equipment, such as generators, cooling towers and fuel storage tanks, Jones Lang LaSalle was engaged to manage the base building’s electrical and mechanical systems upgrade process. The project included an aggressive two-phase schedule and a $4 million budget.

A best-in-class project team was assembled to address the challenging task of installing major mechanical and electrical equipment not programmed in the design of the original building. We constructed a riser shaft with diversification, major electrical supply and major HVAC supply to bring all of the systems in the building up to the tenants’ required specifications.
Phase I was completed on time and within budget by July 2000.  Phase II was on schedule and completed in March 2001. As a result of the successful upgrade, the landlord was able to maximize income by providing specialized services to each of tenants.
