65 Simcoe

This 1980’s newspaper building stood under used and in need of renovation.  Extending the arts and culinary concept of the neighbouring Tremont, the building was divided into 8 creative studios connected by a central hallway. The hallway and lobby functions as a community gallery.  The building was opened up with the addition of new store fronts that complied with the surrounding heritage district.  Sixty Five Simcoe Street is now a vibrant home to creative and culinary businesses.  The building features performing  arts with the Theatre Collingwood Production Centre and the Fleet-wood Dance Studio; an antique and vintage shop; an animation studio and the home of a local internet radio station.  The Creemore Coffee Studio is a great meeting place, while the Food Co-op and Community Kitchen feature local and natural food products.
