Efforts to revitalize the Port Lands just got a major boost with the announcement of a new 135,000 square foot film and television support facility for Pinewood Toronto Studios.

This massive development will add to its existing 300,000 square foot purpose-built studio campus on the Toronto waterfront. Toronto Port Lands Company and Pinewood Toronto Studios will enter into a long-term lease for an additional 1.75 acres of land for the development of space to support Toronto’s thriving film and television sector.

Many big-budget movies and TV shows are shot at Pinewood, including Pacific Rim, Total Recall and the highly-anticipated Suicide Squad.

This is the next step towards Pinewood's plans to double its current size to eventually grow to 600,000 square feet. 

Less than three kilometres from the downtown core on the eastern waterfront, Pinewood's facilities sit on approximately 14 acres of land, with options to expand to 30 acres. The expansion includes upgrades to studios, spaces for media and innovation, plus hotels, retail and green spaces.
