Artscape is a not-for-profit organization that
makes space for creativity and transforms communities.
Artscape Triangle Lofts is a condominium development created to preserve vital artist work and living space in the Queen West Triangle neighborhood of Toronto.
Artscape Triangle Lofts comprise the first three floors of the 18-story Westside Gallery Lofts condominium development and includes a mix of affordable rental units for professional artists as well as below-market ownership units for artists and non-profit arts professionals.
Artscape Triangle Lofts is a non-profit initiative to create a new self-sustaining development model that permits opportunities for both rental housing and live/work ownership, encourages a mixed-use community, and supports a range of incomes in the arts community in perpetuity. Artscape acknowledges the tremendous leadership of the City of Toronto, and project partners Urbancorp and Active 18, in developing this new model. Without their support and commitment, Artscape Triangle Lofts would not be possible.
In 2007, Artscape, the City of Toronto, Urbancorp and Active 18 announced this pioneering new below-market live/work development for the arts community within Urbancorp’s Westside Gallery Lofts condominium development. The goal of this partnership is to permanently preserve vital artist work and living space in the Queen West Triangle neighbourhood. Artscape Triangle Lofts will serve as a model across Toronto and internationally, where gentrification threatens to displace creative people from their neighbourhoods.
