The Macdonald Block Complex is the administrative hub of Ontario government operations, accommodating approximately 3,600 people. The complex is used as government offices and has a total rentable area of about 1.22 million rentable square feet.

Completed in 1971, the Macdonald Block Complex has never undergone a major renovation. The core systems, including electrical, water, cooling, and heating, have reached the end of their useful life and must be replaced. The project involves the extensive reconstruction of the Macdonald Block Complex, which includes the Macdonald Block Podium, Hearst, Hepburn, Mowat, and Ferguson Towers in Toronto.
