    DT Toronto: Ryerson Submits Rezoning Application for 41-Storey Tower

    In the last few years, Ryerson University has made a number of architecturally significant additions to their campus in Toronto’s Downtown Core. The Snøhetta-designed Student Learning Centre creates an iconic gateway to the campus on Yonge Street, while the under-construction Daphne Cockwell Health Sciences Complex is bringing a Perkins + Will-designed tower to Church Street. Now, the University has submitted a rezoning application for what could be the largest project in their expansion, and what their website deems to potentially be their last significant opportunity to add institutional space in an area of downtown with very little re-developable land.

    Designed by Copenhagen-based Henning Larsen Architects with Zeidler Partnership Architects of Toronto, 202 Jarvis is proposed as a 41-storey tower with institutional, retail, and student residence uses. The building is proposed on a Ryerson-owned parking lot where it will complete the transformation of the Jarvis and Dundas intersection, a process that started with the construction of Pace Condos in the early-half of the decade, a has been joined by Grid Condos and Dundas Square Gardens more recently.

    The building will consist of an 11-storey academic base with 31,468 square metres of classroom, laboratory, and research space intended for the Faculty of Science. The tower floors above will house a Ryerson-owned and operated student residence with capacity for 551 students to live on campus. 3 floors of bike storage, two of which will be underground, will be able to house over 1,000 bikes and meet the demand for bike storage infrastructure on campus. 576  of retail is proposed to serve pedestrian traffic at the corner of Jarvis and Dundas.
