"Being able to purchase a studio and owning a space to work in the heart of the city will be invaluable
to my artistic practice. It gives me a sense of security that renting never could."

Queen West Culture
Located at 180 Shaw Street, Artscape YOUNGplace lies in the heart of the West Queen West Art + Design District, just steps from Trinity-Bellwoods Park and the lively Ossington Avenue strip. This neighbourhood has the highest concentration of creative workers and art galleries in Toronto and is home to cultural hubs like The Theatre Centre, Gladstone Hotel, Drake Hotel, and the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (MoCCA).

Below-market rates are achieved through an innovative financing program by Artscape, a not-for-profit organization with 25 years of experience developing creative space. Artscape will provide a 25% no-interest, payment-free second mortgage on each work studio, which will bring the purchase price below-market. To view the sales package, click here>
