The area is where many of Toronto’s creative types come to work, and with restaurants, bars, concert venues, nightclubs, bowling alleys, ping pong, billiards, and tons of other entertainment you can play as hard as you work!

Ground Floor
CSI Spadina’s ground floor is fully accessible with a lift on the south side of the building.

Guests will enter through the south laneway door, which has a lift. The laneway is located between 192 Spadina and 190 Spadina.

When you arrive in the building please contact our welcome desk (416-979-3939 ext. 1) to have a staff or DECA to provide access to the lift.

Upper Floors

The coworking space on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors are not fully accessible: they can be reached via an elevator with a door of 30” width. Functionally this means that while we are able to accommodate many accessibility devices, those using larger devices may need alternative arrangements.

Community Makerspace

The Toronto Tool Library — located on the ground floor of 192 Spadina — is a is exactly as it sounds: just like a book library, but for tools! Its associated Community Makerspace is where people of all ages build projects using digital fabrication, coding, craft, woodworking and electronics.

The Toronto Tool Library offers memberships for those looking to share space and tools, and education programs for adults, kids and educators. Stop by their monthly Community Night from 5-8pm where they open up their Makerspace and Tool Library to the public to use for free. Get access to 3D printers, our open-source laser cutter, full wood shop and all the tools in our inventory to work on a project.  expert volunteers are on site to help.
