Diverse Character Multi Use Studio

200 Reviews


6000sq/ft building in the heart of downtown, with two entire floors of production studio space, private self-contained offices, separate boardroom, full kitchen, and exclusive access to a 3000sq/ft rooftop with absolutely stunning city skyline views.

2000sq/ft production studio and event space with locking privacy, 100 year old character and factory windows. Furnished with modern couches and decor, and a borderline obsessive tropical plant collection... ;)

Number one performing listing in Toronto, with countless photography clients ($40 hourly), a reknowned film production location ($100 hourly) for movie and television scenes, commercials, and an extremely popular and versatile location for music videos and other creative visual content for artists.

Looking through all of our reviews shows this is truly an exceptional space for event bookings as well over the years with many seminars, large group meetings, private celebratory events such as weddings, showers, proposals, birthdays, popular for product launch, release party, there's nothing we haven't hosted at this point...

**PLZ NOTE - event rentals are individually determined on a simple and transparently shared formula, based on their unique production details; hours on-site, number of attendee's, food & beverage sales, in-house catering requests, staffing requests, set-up assitance requests, additional furniture and decor requests, peripheral area usage such as kitchen, rooftop etc etc, so basically speaking all of the things adding to the overall 'impact to the space'

The space was clean and looked just like the photos. The host was very helpful and communicative which helped make the shoot a lot easier answering any questions me or the others at the shoot had. I will definelty be coming back to shoot here again.

A uniquely fantastic space. Good energy and lots of character. We hosted a small event here and Dylan was so easy going and helpful from start to finish. We had clear and detailed communication throughout the entire process, he was excited about our ideas for the space and truly helped realize them. Can't thank him enough.

Dylan is a fantastic and flexible host. He was able to accommodate my last minute requests and changes without hesitation. The space is truly diverse and beautiful, it has an authenticity to it that is unmatched in most studios. The grungy and industrial aesthetic is hard to find in downtown Toronto these days, but the location of this building is quite convenient and the space has old Toronto industrial written all-over it. The entire floor is accessible and ready for use, and having access to the rooftop added a unique element to our shoot. Plenty of natural light and diverse areas to the space to work with. I highly recommend this studio space for any photographer looking for a space that can be maximized in multiple ways. I'll 100% be renting Dylan's space again in the future for shoots and or events. A fantastic first experience with This Open Space.
