The leasing of over 74,000 square metres of office space is one of the measures that the broadcaster is hoping will generate around $50 million by 2017.
“There’s a lot of square footage that is not used because of the cuts over the years,” CBC/Radio-Canada CEO Hubert Lacroix told reporters this week.
“What we’re trying to do right now is look to tenants. We’ve already started doing this. We would like to think that we can package some square footage in our buildings to actually invite tenants into our building.”
CBC already leases office space in its Toronto headquarters to Disney and Boston Pizza.
