“New ideas must use old buildings.”
— Jane Jacobs
Converting old buildings opens the space to new uses, giving creative people the opportunity to challenge and inspire one another. When you incorporate the raw materials of structure – brick, beam, concrete, metal – into a modern design, you make a claim. Transformation is possible; it’s happening here. The workshop authenticity carries an energy that activates imagination. Creatives of all kinds intuitively respond.

Riverside & Leslieville
Vibrant neighbourhoods for a creative community
It’s no secret that there’s a rough-edged coolness to this side of Toronto. The working-class history of warehouses and industry is still embedded in the streetscapes, alongside hip cafés and bars, great restaurants, and a host of quirky furniture, antique and design stores.
There’s a minimum of attitude over here, but a lot of creativity. Filmmakers, graphic designers, musicians, woodworkers, VFX artists, photographers, dancers, audio producers, and tech entrepreneurs come here to get their work done. Many of them live here.
If you’ve got some time to kill, visit the eastside and we’ll surprise you:
- Finally learn how to repair your own bike Bikesauce
- Launch your boutique arts brand Leslieville Arts Market
- Lace up your gloves (if you’re female or trans) and learn to box The Toronto Newgirls Boxing Club

- Find the perfect toy for your Inner Child Atomic Toybot
