The University of Toronto is laying down the framework for more on-campus housing and other services after receiving approval from the Governing Council’s business board for a new policy called the “four corners strategy.”
Prospective projects include a new 23-storey high-rise residence at Spadina Avenue and Sussex Avenue, and a 14-storey innovation centre at the corner of College Street and University Avenue.
U of T’s vice-president university operations Scott Mabury stated in a university news article that “this is all about building non-academic spaces we need today in a way that supports the University of Toronto’s academic and strategic priorities tomorrow.”
The residence, scheduled to be completed in 2021, will house 511 students.
