Corus Quay's Waterfront Radio Waves
When the studios were completed, all three stations were transitioned on one weekend. The two FMS were switched on a Saturday, and the AM was switched on a Sunday. This meant that Monday morning had three morning shows launching from studios all at once.
The building itself has several unique features. There is a large atrium in the center, which includes a five-storey bio wall. This wall uses plants to naturally clean the air and reduce energy consumption. There is also a three-storey slide that starts at the top of the lounge and runs into the Atrium.
Looking back, Coldwell says the long time frame from inception to completion (four years) was a challenge. Trying to plan that far ahead was not easy. In some cases, desired equipment was not yet available. As the project progressed, some equipment was updated before it was even purchased. Still Coldwell is proud of what he contributed to the project, and he calls it a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
