The firm was retained by the MPAR / CHC Student Housing team to provide full architectural and interior design services for the development of a new 524-bed student residence on Church Street south of Ryerson University’s Gerrard Campus in Toronto.
The residence, which is currently going through the City of Toronto’s zoning amendment process, is comprised primarily of large 4-bedroom suites with dedicated kitchens and living space. The building also includes a mix of student amenity spaces including a communal kitchen and dining floor, a gym and exercise area, games rooms, and a series of significant quiet study and group-work spaces. The building also includes 5,000sf of retail space at grade. The project, which is expected to open in 2018, will be managed by Canadian Campus Communities.
