The company recently hosted Guillermo del Toro’s Oscar-winning fantasy movie The Shape of Water (pictured) and is also home to acclaimed TV drama The Handmaid’s Tale.

The new dockside facility will be a more advanced version of an additional site that the company sold off in another part of the city two years ago.

“Toronto's film industry has great potential for further growth and success,” said Steve Mirkopoulos, president and CEO of Cinespace.

“The Cinespace family is proud to move on phase two of our multi-year, multi-million-dollar investment and intensification initiative.

“The new Marine Terminal studio complex will feature 165,000 sq ft of production space that both relocates and enhances capacity recently displaced, and most importantly keeps it inside Toronto's strategically important studio district.”

As one of North America’s main production hubs, Toronto is under pressure to offer more studio space.

Cinespace is already building a pair of new sound stages at its main Toronto site – to complement the new dockside facility – and Pinewood Toronto Studios announced in December that it would be opening a new production facility in May of this year.
