From Artspace to Office Space in Liberty Village

Hullmark Properties have partnered with Quadrangle Architects on an adaptive reuse project in Liberty Village; a boutique office, retail and restaurant space at 60 Atlantic Avenue, a two-storey heritage industrial building built in 1898 for St. David's Wine Growers. Most recently, the building was the home of Artscape Liberty Village, which opened in 1991 to provide low-cost studio space to artists and musicians. Artscape rented the building from the City of Toronto; TEDCO, at that time the city's Economic Development Corporation, arranged a lease agreement that would keep the organization's rents affordable. In 2012, though, that agreement came to an end, along with Artscape's tenancy. The building was sold to Hullmark; construction is ongoing and is expected to finish later this year. When complete, the building will be home to anchor tenants INVIVO Communications, West restaurant, and retail space. · Converting Liberty Village Heritage for Today [UrbanToronto]
