Flight Centre opens things up

The company's new Toronto flagship goes brick-and-beam to brighten the vibe.


Most people in urban and suburban markets can probably describe a Flight Centre fairly accurately: a simple office set-up in a high-traffic mall or storefront with long, low desks lined with computers.

However, the company’s new location in downtown Toronto is a hard right turn from that format. Intended as a mixed-use event and planning space, it looks more like a creative agency than a travel agency, with brick-and-beam design, broad open spaces, a split-level design and more of a lounge feel.

The 10,000-sq. ft. space was designed by Quadrangle with an open public area on the main floor that is intended to host travel-related events.
