Office Leasing in Toronto

Toronto Office Space for Lease, Professional Office Space for Rent

Did you know? Most Toronto office spaces for lease are not posted on the MLS system. Professional leases are typically conducted through real estate brokerages.

It is important that you as the potential leaser have your own individual representation. This way you are independently represented and protected through the offer-to-lease transaction.

We can provide Toronto office leasing and Mississauga office leasing from 1,000 sq.ft. to 100,000 sq.ft.

How Much Office Space Does My Company Require?

Below you will find a handy list of square footage figures to help you calculate how much space you might need for your next office.  Of course, these are only guidelines – I recommend that we set up a meeting prior to touring properties to establish your specific office requirements.

  • Typical President’s Office – 300 to 400 sq. ft.
  • Typical Vice-President’s Office – 225 to 300 sq. ft.
  • Typical Executive’s Office – Average 150 sq. ft.
  • Typical Associate’s Office – Average 100 sq. ft.
  • Manager Workstations – 64 to 80 sq. ft.
  • Workstations – (Can vary depending on function) 36 to 48 sq. ft
  • Conference Rooms – approx. 25 to 30 sq. ft. per person (conference table) – this can vary based on conference room usage
  • Server Room – 80 to 200 sq. ft. but depends upon amount of usage.
  • Mail/Copy Room – 100 to 150 sq. ft. but depends upon amount of usage.
  • Reception Area – 125 to 200 sq. ft. for receptionist and seating for 2 – 4 people; 200 to 300 sq. ft. for receptionist and seating for 6 – 8 people.
  • Lunch / Break Room – 100 sq. ft. with no seating / 150-225 sq. ft. with a table that seats 4-6 people
  • Circulation (inclusive of hallways, closets, etc…) – Typically add 30-40% on top of the total sq. ft.
  • Loss Factor – Typically add 20% to total sq. ft. inclusive of circulation space.  This will vary based on the building age and construction, but 20% is a good starting estimate.

Commercial real estate is far more complex than that of a residential property. I can guide you through the process.
