Development at Spadina and Sussex Avenues is scheduled to be completed in 2021
Facing a housing crunch, the University of Toronto has reached an agreement with the city and local community groups that allows it to build a badly needed new 23-storey student residence at the corner of Spadina and Sussex Avenues.
The slender tower, the first new residence building to be constructed on the downtown Toronto campus in a decade, will house 511 students in a bright, airy structure that mixes modern residence spaces with lively retail storefronts.
It will also incorporate a three-storey heritage building into its façade.
