Schwartz Reisman Innovation Centre, University of Toronto

Toronto, Ontario

Project Description

The Schwartz Reisman Innovation Centre is to be the first new building on 112 College Street (Best Building) on development Site 14. The anticipated building massing consists of a tapered 13-storey tower (Mechanical Penthouse not included).

Crossey is providing Mechanical, Electrical design, Telecom, Security, Energy modelling and LEED consulting.

Occupants will be the University of Toronto Entrepreneurship (UTE), the Innovations & Partnerships Office (IPO), the Vector Institute of Artificial Intelligence (VIAI) as well as Office/Start-Ups space. To encourage cross-collaboration, programmatic shared spaces will be distributed vertically through the building. Collaborative spaces include a 3-storey atrium, multiple instructional spaces including a large 200-seat multipurpose room, shared meeting rooms, lounge spaces/winter gardens, and a café, all serving to foster exchange and build a community of entrepreneurs and innovators.

The overall sustainability target is equivalent to LEED Gold; strategies include radiant floor heating, solar PV, and highly reduced lighting loads due to the excellent daylighting opportunities achieved through small floor plates, heat recovery and stormwater capture and reuse.
