After being selected as a finalist in September 2013, Daniels Spectrum has been named the "Best New Event Venue in Canada" by event industry leader BizBash. The Diamond Schmitt Architects-designed, 60,000 square foot community and arts centre opened in September 2012 and has become a cultural hub in the Regent Park neighbourhood.

The enviromentally-friendly complex is dedicated to art, innovation, and diversity, providing rehearsal and office space for several Regent Park-based performing arts groups, studio and display space for visual arts groups, music education space, small business incubation space, and indoor and outdoor performance space including the 400-seat Ada Slaight Hall. The centre's commitment to artistic creation, inclusivity, and celebration of diversity has made it a key element of the Regent Park revitalization project.
