AT RISK INFORMATION
At risk status:
This building is at risk

Info:

This substantial brick building was never identified as having heritage value in the discussions between the City and U of T during the 1990\'s. Even though it has significant features and was designed by an important firm which might have been enough to warrant protection in another neighbourhood, as U of T needed to have space for potential expansion this building was given a lower rating when compared to other buildings on campus. It is to be replaced by the new Shwartz-Reisman Innovation Centre. Construction is expected to begin in the fall of 2019.
