CSI Spadina Members

CSI 192 members work across sectors from farming to finance and everything in between.

The Building & Accessibility

We bought the 64,000 square-foot Murray Building with the help of 227 investors in our Community Bonds. This brick & beam beauty was built in 1920. Formerly a printing company, with a stint in the garment industry, the Murray Building is now home to a makerspace, Climate Ventures, and hundreds of organizations making good sh*t happen.

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.

We are committed to ensuring all members and their guests are able to use our services. If you have any accessibility concerns or questions please reach out the Community Manager: Stefan(at)socialinnovation.ca.

Event Space

Our beautiful ground floor can be the backdrop for your next event!

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! It’s 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 Community Night from 5pm-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. Our expert volunteers are on site to help.

192 Spadina is just steps from Queen Street West – included in Vogue’s 2014 list of coolest neighbourhoods, ooh la la – Chinatown and Kensington Market. 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!
