“We’re pleased at the overwhelming interest from a diverse range of non-profit groups across the city,” Roger Jevne with the city said in a release on Friday. “Each has a rich history of providing arts programming or social support to the community and we’re happy to welcome them to The Orange Hub.”

The tenants were selected through a public tendering process that started before the city took ownership of the building last September.

The second phase of tenant selection is scheduled to start in the early spring. Non-profit groups and businesses who are interested in applying can click here.
