202 Jarvis Street
Ryerson University is preparing to move forward with a new project that will provide additional academic space for our community, most of all the Faculty of Science. The university has submitted an application to rezone a surface parking lot at 202 Jarvis Street so that Ryerson can build when funding becomes available. The property represents a significant opportunity for Ryerson to expand its campus vertically and provide needed space to meet demands for growth.
The project is focusing on three key priorities of Ryerson’s Master Plan:
Urban intensification: Leveraging this opportunity to further develop a vertical campus for strategic urban intensification that makes the most of small urban properties and offers transparency and accessibility at grade.
People first: Creating a distinctive and dynamic public realm that connects the university precinct with a system of green, open spaces, and accessible pedestrian zones, streets and sidewalks that foster collegiality and community connections.
Design excellence: Expanding Ryerson’s academic and student-focused spaces to provide state-of-the-art facilities for teaching, research, study and experiential learning.
Have your say! We want to hear from you!
In 2017, Ryerson University hosted a community open house to discuss potential plans, identify opportunities and challenges, and build community understanding. Neighbours, workers, volunteers, city staff, business owners and students attended the open house and the results of community feedback contributed the preliminary designs and concepts that you see today.
To support the project’s application with the City of Toronto and to continue ongoing discussions that will help with planning, design and development of this project, Ryerson also recently completed some well attended community consultations that introduced preliminary concept designs to our stakeholders:
- June 4th Public meeting - Public Meeting in the International Living/Learning Centre (ILC) from 7 to 9 p.m. on June 4th.
- June 5th Pop-up event - Ryerson consultation event at the Student Learning Centre (SLC) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 5th.
- May 29 - June 12 Online consultation - Two-week opportunity to submit comments or concerns online for transportation, ground floor programming and the built form.
