University of Toronto
The university plans to begin construction on the first phase of the Schwartz Reisman Innovation Centre in the fall of 2019.
The new nine-level building is one of U of T’s most energy-efficient—meeting or exceeding many Tier 2 Toronto Green Standard performance measures.
The building will incorporate a three-storey heritage building and rise 23-storeys at the corner of Spadina and Sussex Avenues.
Sustainable design features include a rainfall recycling system, green roof and an electronic rolling blind system to control the amount of light and solar gain coming through the glass façade.
