A 1.3-million sq. ft. ‘City of the Arts’ will soon rise on TORONTO’s eastern waterfront. Developed by Daniels Corporation, the company that’s transforming Regent Park into a new community, the project is to be built in two phases. The south phase, nearest the lake, will include office space in two buildings, retail space at ground level, and a 150,000-square-foot Creative Industries Hub that will house a cluster of arts organizations.
Non-profit (and very active) arts development organization Artscape is moving into the complex, along with a talent management firm, an entertainment law firm, Manifesto (whose programs empower disadvantaged youth through arts and culture), and the Remix Project (a non-profit organization working with youth in the creative sector). Daniels Corporation plans to relocate here as well.
