Peter Street Neighbourhood Spotlight

Peter Street Neighbourhood Spotlight

When our Peter Street location opened in 2018, it ushered in a new era for Workplace One. Our spaces have always made us proud: their attention to detail, their unique charm, and the way they enable productivity for our members. But when Peter Street opened, it was like meeting a long-lost cousin who seemed intimately familiar yet brought with it a whole new perspective.

Bright, airy, and elegant, Peter Street is the kind of space that leaves people speechless when they see it for the first time. Daylight streams into the space from the 7th storey windows of 111 Peter Street in the heart of Toronto’s Entertainment District. Moss walls and decorative greenery complement the colourful modern decor, while two large outdoor patios breathe a breath of fresh air into the workspace.


The workspace is divided into private offices, dedicated desks, and lounges. The glass-walled private offices are bright with the walls partially-frosted for privacy. Sit-stand desks are a feature of each office and are the perfect example of the flexibility that Workplace One strives for — each desk also has its own lockable filing cabinet.

Dedicated desks are an ideal set-up for solo entrepreneurs or small teams that want the same space each day. A step up from traditional coworking, these desks come with a lockable filing cabinet as well — and dedicated desk users have all of the same member perks as private office users.


Our Peter Street location is home to two meeting rooms that can be booked for as little as half an hour and are easily reserved online for members and non-members. The Wild Room seats up to 16 people while the Wonder Room is perfect for smaller groups of up to 6. Each meeting rooms is equipped with interactive TVs, conference call equipment, whiteboards, and privacy curtains.


One highlight that is truly unique to this space are the two west-facing patios that overlook downtown and beyond. Perfect for events, or even a quick breath of fresh air, these outdoor respites are virtually unheard of in shared workspaces and we are proud to be able to offer them to our members and guests.

The features of the workspace go beyond the walls of the building. Peter Street is ideally located in Toronto’s Entertainment District meaning there is no shortage of shops, restaurants, and bars to visit whether for business or pleasure. Here are a few of our favourites.
