Creative industries coming to Bloor-Lansdowne area

Tower Automotive
One of the biggest changes to our neighbourhood over the next few years may be happening on Sterling Ave. Details about this can be found in this article in the Villager from February 21st.

Castlepoint Realty Partners, who purchased the property at 158 Sterling Ave. last year, is in negotiations with Pinewood Studios, billed as Europe's largest film studio. Its owners include world renowned filmmakers Sir Ridley Scott (Gladiator) and his brother Tony Scott (Top Gun).

"Castlepoint is in discussions with Pinewood Studios," confirmed Consultant Paul Pellegrini, "but nothing's been concluded."

Should the studio not become Castlepoint's main tenant, it will still continue with redevelopment and will seek businesses in the creative industry as tenants such as graphic arts, architecture, IT and recording studios, Pelligrini said.

Bloor/Dundas Visioning Session #2

The notice below arrived in my mailbox on February 27th. This visioning study is for an area just outside of our Residents Association, Bloor St. between Dundas W. and Keele, but its impact may affect most of us.

If you shop on Bloor St., use Dundas West subway station, use the Bloor GO station, or even just walk, cycle, or drive through the area, you may be interested in attending this session. Details below.

Feb. 26th Boys and Girls Club rally

Rally for the Boys and Girls Club

Last night, a rally and candle light vigil was held at 21 Randolph Ave to support the Dovercourt Boys and Girls Club, who are facing eviction from their current building. Despite the snow and wind, approximately 80 children, parents, and other supporters attended the rally, along with local city councillor Adam Giambrone.

Councillor Giambrone provided some positive news for the situation: The club's lease was extended by one month until the end of March, which gives everyone a bit more time to find a solution to this issue.

More photos from this rally can be found in our image gallery.
