Unique Opportunity -Operate Toronto’s newest Arts and Cultural Centre
The Regent Park Neighbourhood is being revitalized through a 12-15 year multiphased process that involves creating a mixed-use, mixed-income community of approximately 5,500 units of new condominium and rental housing, along with a blend of retail and community facilities.
Many community-building opportunities are being leveraged through the Revitalization initiative and the development of an Arts and Cultural Centre has been a major objective since the inception of the revitalization plan. Now, Toronto Community Housing and its development partner, The Daniels
Corporation, are pursuing the creation of a purpose-built 50,000 square foot Arts and Cultural Centre that will serve Regent Park and the broader Toronto community.
The Centre will be a showcase for artistic talent, an incubator of creative people and organizations, a workshop for new artistic creations, and the social heart of the Regent Park neighbourhood with particular focus on supporting local and grass-roots arts groups operating in Regent Park.
Toronto Community Housing and The Daniels Corporation are looking for an innovative, engaged Facility Operator to be part of this opportunity.
