As Canada’s leader in multi-tenant space development for the arts and culture sector, Artscape has transformed a portfolio of underutilized buildings across Toronto into dynamic community assets. Our projects provide workspaces for many galleries, theatres, and not-for-profit organizations and live/workspaces for hundreds of artists and designers.

In this section, you’ll find detailed case studies of Artscape projects, including the Parkdale Arts and Cultural Centre, Artscape Gibraltar Point, Artscape Distillery Studios, Artscape Wychwood Barns, Artscape Youngplace, Daniels Spectrum, and Artscape Triangle Lofts. These case studies tell the stories of our buildings from the early stages of project development to current operations, and offer a detailed view into how the projects came to life.
