What Ryerson Has Planned For Church Street
Ryerson University has unveiled design plans for its new multidisciplinary building at 270-288 Church St., just north of Dundas. Slated to open in 2018, the 166k SF mixed-use complex, designed by Perkins+Will, will house the Faculty of Community Services, plus 250 new residence beds, 10 clinical suites, teaching labs, and a fabrication zone with 3D printers, robotic arms, and laser cutter. (Get ready for this excuse: "Professor, I did my homework, but the laser cutter destroyed it.") Faculty of Community Services dean Usha George says the space will spur creative collaboration. The building, at a cost of $104M, will target LEED Silver, with a green roof and 250 bike spaces.
