New partner in Hamilton west harbour film hub project
TAS joins Aeon and Forge and Foster in plan to redevelop barren Barton-Tiffany lands
TAS — a Toronto-based firm that focuses on mixed-use projects and commercial community hubs — is to lead the proposed redevelopment of the roughly 14 acres of barren land between the CN rail yard, Queen, Tiffany and Barton streets.
Meanwhile, Aeon Studio Group, which already has a production studio on Queen near the city-owned parcels, is “thrilled” to have TAS aboard, partner Jeff Anders said.
The consortium, which aims to turn the properties into a mixed-use creative arts and residential district anchored by film and television production studios, also includes Forge and Foster, a local real estate investment firm.
In February, Aeon opened its Bayfront Studios in an 80,000-square-foot former manufacturing building at 243 Queen St. N., across from the city-owned lands eyed for the mixed-used development.
