401 Richmond 25th Anniversary

Purchased by the Zeidler family in 1994, 401 Richmond now celebrating 25 years, quickly established itself as a haven for those working in creative industries. Built in 1899, the building began life as a factory on Catherine Street (now Richmond St. W.) producing lithography on tin ware for countless products including household products, Ontario’s first licence plates, and gas masks and shell canisters during World War II.

With over a hundred different organizations occupying 401 Richmond, creativity and the production of arts continues to thrive in the galleries, artist studios, design agencies, cultural festival offices, and media arts organizations, just to name a few. Still operating with the same vision inspired by social urban activist Jane Jacobs, citing that “new ideas must use old buildings”, 401 Richmond remains a vibrant and diverse space where community, culture and commerce flourish together.
