In response to growing demand for studio space, Toronto’s Revival 629 Film Studios has announced a plan to expand its studio space located at 629 Eastern Avenue. The addition of a new 7,500 square foot studio called Revival XP will cater to those who require studio space for a short term, such as for the production of music videos, television commercials and virtual reality.
The state-of-the-art facility will feature 1,500 square feet of support space, 40 foot ceilings, green walls and lighting grids. Revival XP is expected to be available for lease by July 2017.
“Not only will this new studio help fulfill the high demand for production space in the city – it is also uniquely designed for higher frequency short term use,” said John Tory, Mayor of Toronto, in a press release. “This studio is another attractive asset that Toronto can offer to foreign and domestic productions interested in producing in Toronto.”
“With over 240,000 square feet in 11 studios over a 18.5 acre site located in the heart of the Film District, Revival 629 is one of the largest film operations in Canada and well positioned to meet all the needs of today’s film and media industry,” said Mitchell Goldhar, real estate developer.
Goldhar jointly owns Revival 629 alongside SmartREIT. Revival 629 was recently approved for a 1.2 million square foot mixed-use development called StudioCentre, which will bring additional office space, retail and hotel space to the area surrounding the studio.
