Ryerson Univ. (architect-led) WALKING TOUR $20 Thursday, March 19, 2015, 12:00PM – 1:30PM
Church Street Development (CSD) to be located just north of Dundas on Church Street is currently just another parking lot. However in the coming years, we will be transforming that unremarkable parcel of land into a combination of academic and administrative spaces, housing for students, retail areas and an underground parking garage. The CSD will be home to Ryerson’s Daphne Cockwell School of Nursing, the Midwifery Education, School of Nutrition, School of Occupational and Public Health, Communications, Government & Community Engagement, University Advancement, Food Services and a Fabrication Zone.
Student Learning Centre, Transforming the corner of Yonge and Gould streets into one of Toronto’s most vibrant, people-friendly intersections, the Student Learning Centre (SLC) will give the Ryerson community an outstanding environment in which to study, collaborate and share ideas. The SLC was designed through a partnership between two renowned architectural firms: Snøhetta & Zeidler Partnership Architects. It has been targeted to achieve LEED Silver certification. A short video explains the SLC’s main design features.
Mattamy Athletic Centre, Once upon a time, the Toronto Maple Leafs skated to victory within these walls. Now, the Mattamy Athletic Centre at the Gardens is home to the Ryerson Rams varsity hockey, basketball and volleyball teams. Completely redesigned through a creative partnership between Ryerson University and Loblaw, the Mattamy Athletic Centre offers Ryerson students an NHL-sized hockey rink, basketball court and fitness centre. Limited space available.
