There’s more to TAS than its ambitious mixed-use communities and environmental focus—much more. The Toronto-based developer was recently placed on the “B Corp Best for the World” list, which recognizes influential companies for their impact on society and the business world.
To become an honouree, a company must meet the highest standard of performance, transparency and accountability in the workplace and actively offer a positive business outlook.
TAS has been doing just that with its unwavering efforts to positively impact all of the communities it touches. The company landed among the top 10 per cent of all Certified B Corporations, which includes 92 other companies worldwide and 12 nationally. In total, there are more than 970 Certified B corps across 60 industries and 32 countries.
In saying that, you must be curious about what the big name developer has been doing to gain such a status. For starters, TAS operates using the Four Pillars of Sustainability™—ecological, social, economic and cultural—in order to make sound decisions.
In addition, the company has a number of sustainable design partnerships on the go, such as The Farm Lot. The developer partnered with Fresh City last year to create an interactive city garden exhibit that connects the community with wholesome food and local producers. It will return again this spring in a vacant building located at 369 King Street West in Toronto.
Another one of its influential partnerships is with Cultivate Toronto, as both companies have worked together to bring rooftop gardens to Toronto’s Regent Park. In 2013, the organization was able to donate nearly 400 pounds of fresh produce to a local community meal program.
Speaking of rooftops gardens, TAS is unveiling a third this year atop their own office buildings. As a result, tenants will be able to take part in food-based educational programs. Talk about a healthy work environment.
It comes as no surprise then that TAS takes the same amount of care when designing and developing its residential projects, such as DUKE Condos (pictured) in Toronto’s Junction neighbourhood.
The eight-storey condo and townhouse project is sustainable and rich with culture thanks to the distinct live/work lofts, green roof, energy-efficient appliances and bold architecture that fits into the existing streetscape.
Prices for available units start in the lower $200,000s and suites range from 445 to 1,537 square feet.
