About 5 Lower Jarvis

5 Lower Jarvis is located in Daniels Waterfront – City of the Arts, a mixed-use community comprised of residential, academic, office, retail and arts spaces, envisioned as a fully connected destination that enhances Toronto’s position as an internationally-recognized city of arts, culture, and innovation.. The site was formerly occupied by the Sugar Contemporary art space, named for its proximity to the Redpath Sugar Refinery. The Redpath Refinery, still active, is located on Toronto’s shoreline at the corner of Jarvis Street and Queens Quay and stands as a reminder of the lakeshore’s industrial history.

This site is generously provided by The Daniels Corporation in partnership with WJ Properties.
