Crumbling brick pillars, rusting metal beams and the smell of soap – these are the sights and scents to be found at Toronto’s next historic space available for creative use. For $10,000 per day, you can book the Unilever factory, located at the foot of the Don River, where soap was manufactured for more than 100 years. Although not suited for live events at the moment, the intrinsic space is a prime spot to shoot your next music video or produce some stunning photography for a rate of $1,250/hour.
Due to the nature of the site, music festivals, weddings, private events, cultural programming and corporate gatherings will not be considered at this time. In this case, one can hope/expect the venue gets the upgrade it deserves to host these sort of functions in days to come. A 10-day design festival is however set for the fall. The site had been closed to the public for the last 8 years and is just now providing rental info to woulda-be interest at the 10,000 square foot space.
Last week, NOW Toronto published an extensive gallery of images detailing the nooks and crannies of the rusting industrial space. Click on the photos below to see the full set of images.
