In the heart of Toronto’s luxury shopping district, Yorkville Village takes centre stage as the epicentre of cultural collisions, where diverse worlds, people and influences come together. While the property was undergoing a major redevelopment project, it was also critical to enhance connectivity as the catalyst to drive value for its upscale tenants, customers and stakeholders.
In January 2017, First Capital Realty Inc., enlisted Smart Tech leader, RYCOM, to lead a first-of-its-kind Smart Tech Pilot for the property. RYCOM then worked within the strict timelines of the redevelopment project to design and deploy the additional requirement of a Base Building Network (BBN) for the new Building Automation System (BAS) installation. RYCOM was also called upon to address the issue of limited cell phone service within the mall common areas and parking garage areas and successfully worked with Telecom Solution providers to develop a beneficial solution. Now successfully deployed, RYCOM manages the Smart Building infrastructure for this entire site.
