Lifetime Developments and adidas Canada to refurbish Toronto basketball courts

Lifetime Developments and adidas Canada have announced the launch of Homecourt Advantage, a new revitalization project that will refurbish community basketball courts, including the creation of public art, across the city of Toronto.The team will kick-off Homecourt Advantage’s inaugural year with the renovation and infusion of art into two beloved courts – Stanley Park and Oak Street Park.

“Giving back and enhancing the neighbourhoods in which we build is at the heart of what we do. Choosing Homecourt Advantage as our next charitable initiative felt like a natural fit for us. Not only are we beautifying two local parks, but we’re also supporting the sport of basketball and its impact on the community, bringing together diverse players and serving as a platform to increase confidence and build friendships,” says Brian Brown, Principal, Lifetime Developments and Chair, Lifetime Charitable Foundation. “We are grateful to be partnering with adidas Canada on this program – an inspiring and innovative brand who shares our values and is equally as committed to providing a platform for local communities to be unified through basketball and art.”

To bring vibrancy to the revitalized courts, Homecourt Advantage is fusing art and sport by partnering with two Canadian artists to enhance each project. Bryan Espiritu, a Toronto-born painter, product designer and graphic artist, will be focused on Stanley Park (890 King Street West, near Liberty Village) and Blake Angeconeb, an Anishinaabe woodlands artist who hails from Treaty 3 territory, will be working on Oak Street Park (165 River Street in Cabbagetown).

Construction on the courts is targeted to begin in July 2022, with the courts being ready for public use by Fall 2022.
