TORONTO, Feb. 25, 2016 /CNW/ – Pinewood Toronto Studios is pleased to announce today that it has exercised its option to lease additional land from its landlord, the Toronto Port Lands Company, to build a new 135,000 square foot film and television support facility. This will complement its existing ‘state of the art’ 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 much needed space to support Toronto’s thriving film and television sector. This is a key step in achieving Pinewood Toronto Studios’ plans to grow its facilities — doubling its current size — to 600,000 square feet.

Paul Bronfman, Chairman / CEO of William F. White International Inc. and Chairman of Pinewood Toronto Studios says, “This is a much anticipated milestone which serves as a reaffirmation of our growth and commitment to attract and support all levels of production in Toronto. I’m proud we’re leading the way in adding more purpose-built facilities to our city’s thriving film and television industry.”
