The PIE Complex Phase 1 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 15-storey tower (Mechanical Penthouse not included). Occupants will be 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.
