Scotiabank renews 560,000-sq.-ft. Scotia Plaza lease


KingSett Capital and AIMCo have announced Scotiabank will remain the anchor tenant at the Scotia Plaza office complex in downtown Toronto, renewing a 560,000-square-foot lease at the 40 King St. and 100 Yonge St. towers.

The renewal follows a year of planning and discussions, the co-owners say in a release, but the agreement means Scotiabank is vacating space at the top of the 40 King St. West tower. This means, “For the first time since the building’s construction, one of the best office spaces in Canada will be available for lease in 2023,” the owners say.

“We are very pleased that Scotiabank will continue to be a prominent tenant in the complex that bears its name. This renewal is a testament to how valued partners can work together to achieve a collective objective,” said Bill Logar, KingSett Capital’s executive vice-president of asset management, in the announcement Monday morning.

“Sustainable premium office real estate continues to be integral to promoting collaboration and productivity among employees in the workplace.”

Financial details of the renewal were not released.
