Quadrangle’s award-winning design work for the broadcast, entertainment, advertising and related communications industries has earned international acclaim. Our success in balancing creative innovation with a solid grasp of complex technical requirements has enabled us to build long-term relationships with some of the sector’s most respected players. We worked closely with our first broadcast client, CHUM (now part of Bell Media), to create facilities that mirrored the company’s unique programming style and growing Canadian and international profile. Our design mandate included evolving the iconic ChumCity Building on Toronto’s Queen Street West as it came to house not only Citytv, the groundbreaking streetfront station, but also channels such as MuchMusic and Bravo!. Other highlights of our broadcast/media portfolio include the tenant fit-out of Corus Quay on Toronto’s waterfront; the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) news and library facilities; and a range of Toronto-area projects for TVOntario (TVO), Télé-Française d’Ontario (TFO), Shaw Media and Rogers Media. All of our work in this sector is grounded in a deep understanding of the unique space needs demanded by highly specialized, technology-based industries.

The former CHUM Building, located on Yonge Street near St. Clair Avenue in midtown Toronto, was a local landmark from the 1950s when 1050 CHUM became the city’s first Top 40 rock-and-roll radio station. Quadrangle was engaged to undertake a three phase redesign and renovation of the building. The first phase involved extensive interior renovations to the office areas and restoring the exterior facade. Phases two and three comprised the construction of a new two storey addition facing Yonge Street, housing corporate facilities and sales offices for both local and national operations.
