Project Name: Pinewood Toronto Studios Master Plan
Project Sector: Film, Television and Media Development
Client: Toronto Waterfront Studios Development Inc. / Pinewood Toronto Studios
Pinewood Toronto Studios is seeking to redevelop its 34 acre parcel of leased land in the City of Toronto’s Port Lands to create an exciting, destination film studio location. The lands are currently home to Canada’s largest purpose-built sound stage and following its 200,000 square feet expansion, will become the largest purpose-built studio complex in the country. Pinewood released its Master Plan to the City in June 2020 and will be developing its lands over its 99-year lease with production and media-related uses, a hotel and public realm improvements.
BLG represents Pinewood Toronto Studios’ interests in the appeals of the City’s Central Waterfront Secondary Plan (CWSP), which sets the land use planning framework for the Port Lands, and all aspects of the expansion of the Pinewood Toronto Studios Master Plan.
