iQ Office Suites (, ranked Toronto's top provider of shared office spaces, has opened its second location situated within the historic Bank of Canada Building at 250 University Avenue, in the city's financial district.

In keeping with the firm's dedication to the innovative reuse of character buildings in Toronto, iQ has converted the 21,000-square-foot second floor of the former Bank of Canada building into an inspiring, upscale, high-quality professional business space that breaks the traditional office mold and provides concierge services for business professionals.

The bank's former gold bullion vault has been repurposed as a 4,500-square-foot, amenity-rich "iQ Members lounge," providing a common area where members can host meetings or events, collaborate and brainstorm. The new location joins the company's first shared workspace offering in the historic Dineen Building at 140 Yonge Street. Both locations provide amenity-rich, scalable office solutions designed for today's independent and mobile business professionals.

"Today's business professionals are looking for alternatives to traditional - and often cramped - work spaces. They're seeking out intelligent working environments that provide cutting-edge technologies, stellar amenities and a range of services to power their business needs," says iQ co-founder Kane Willmott. "From our own experience, there's nothing like walking into a well-appointed office surrounded by entrepreneurs and other business professionals to motivate you. We want professionals to know that with iQ, they can access an innovative and creative environment to house their office space - in the best locations in downtown Toronto - with scalable and flexible options to get the 'right fit' for their business."

iQ spaces are designed to meet the essential requirements of independent professionals, growing businesses and larger companies in need of satellite offices. The company's services include state-of-the-art technology and amenities, event and meeting spaces, private offices, pods, dedicated desks, and virtual offices with tailored lease agreements to meet the business and budgetary needs of their members. Both iQ locations provide for easy access to public transportation, restaurants, hotels and other Toronto businesses and amenities.

Founded in 2012 by partners Alex Sharpe and Willmott, iQ creates work spaces that inspire and motivate while streamlining operational costs for members. iQ provides members with the infrastructure they need to become operational within hours. Freed from the logistics of setting up and maintaining a stand-alone office, iQ members can focus on what they do best - run their businesses.
