The Space

The New Common space is in the neighbourhood we started in — St. James Town. It’s a storefront space where we collaborate, empower, and resource organizations, agencies, and individuals.

The name was chosen to best communicate what we hope will happen in the space―people working together for the common good of everyone living in the community. This points to how The New Common is also an approach to living as a community characterized by relationship, collaboration, diversity, creativity, and empowerment.

The space is versatile and socially-designed in order to serve many different purposes. There are tables and chairs for workshops or gatherings with additional seating along the bar and the wrap-around built-in bench. There’s a full kitchen for celebrations and serving. There’s a living room-styled office space for a cozier setting. And to top it off, there’s a piano, a photo/video backdrop, and a 3-in-1 foosball, mini-pool, and air hockey table for some fun!
