Riverdale Hub

The Riverdale Immigrant Women’s Enterprise is excited to inform you about the upcoming Riverdale Hub; a newly renovated, accessible and climate-controlled green building. The Riverdale Hub provides an affordable space for progressive organizations and individuals to work together, forge relationships, create synergies, share visions and reach common goals. Newcomers and immigrants can gain Canadian employment experience and launch their skills through on-site placement and training.

Our units currently available for rent include:

The space is very versatile and can be divided easily. Each floor is around 3000 sq ft, and each workstation is a couple hundred sq ft. Individual workstations include all amenities such as: reception, boardroom, kitchen, access to photocopier/printer, internet and telephone. The design incorporates an airtight and well-insulated building envelope, a ground-source heat pump feeding radiant panel heating, displacement ventilation and cooling, and an air handling unit with enthalpy wheel to recover energy and manage humidity, all of which are designed to provide a comfortable, sustainable environment.

Quick breakdown of the building:
