Halifax, Nova Scotia - Recently named one of Canada's 50 Best Managed companies, Eastlink made its mark on the Halifax "skyscape" today by branding two sides of the office building at 6080 Young Street with it's corporate logo. Commuters and residents can view the Eastlink name on both the Robie and Windsor Street facing sides of the ten-story structure.
Young Tower is operated by CREIT Management and is home to Eastlink's headquarters. Eastlink is a Maritime owned and operated residential and business telecommunications and entertainment service provider, with more than 15 offices, retail and technical locations throughout Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island.
"The decision to brand Young Tower reflects Eastlink's commitment to growth and success within the telecommunications and entertainment market," said Dan McKeen, co-CEO, Eastlink. "As the primary tenant of this facility, we felt branding the building further solidifies and celebrates Eastlink's commitment to this region. We have invested heavily in our communications infrastructure over the past eight years, enabling Maritimers to access leading edge technology and providing choice in their communications provider, while creating long term value for the region."
