Hardly half a year after opening a brand new digital studio on James North — it still has that new studio smell — Centre[3] is moving its textile studio into the stately old Felton Brush industrial building on Harriet Street.

It won’t just be the textile studio. Centre[3] will begin other activities in the new space as well, many of them possibly dovetailing with the arts of movie and television production in Hamilton.


Barton-Tiffany lands

New partner in Hamilton west harbour film hub project

TAS joins Aeon and Forge and Foster in plan to redevelop barren Barton-Tiffany lands

A plan to create a film studio hub on city-owned lands at Hamilton’s west harbour has added a cast member.

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.
