The Commerce Court 3 master plan aims to transform this historic commerce court property in the heart of Toronto's Financial District and develop a new, 64-storey mixed-use office building at the southeast corner of the site. The new East Tower ("CC3") will add approximately 168,000 square metres (1.8 million square feet) of first-rate office space to the downtown core, substantially strengthening the city's employment base and supporting thousands of jobs within Toronto. CC3 will be directly connected to the city's underground PATH network and nearby rapid transit services in an area with significant pedestrian traffic, existing retail, and office development.
