HISTORY OF THE SPACE

AP Events is located in the Carlaw Industrial Centre in the Leslieville community of downtown Toronto east. The original structure was home to Jefferson Glass Co. Factory, a major producer of Ontario blown and pressed glass in the early 1910s. The Jefferson Glass Co. specialized in light shades and illuminated signs and by 1918 it was also making about 35,000 light bulbs a day.After the mill moved away in the 1980s, the factory fell into disuse. The area’s multi-floor industrial buildings could not accommodate the latest production lines and new laws regulated pollution from heavy industries. The building was later refurbished and now houses many light industries and businesses including AP Events.
