York University submits plans for School of Continuing Studies
from Urban Toronto
York University is moving forward with plans for a new School of Continuing Studies building at their main campus in northwestern Toronto. Months after a concept design was revealed, an application seeking Site Plan Approval from the City was submitted earlier this month. The striking new building proposed at the intersection of The Pond Road and James Gillies Street. Perkins + Will — who won a design competition for the facility against shortlisted finalists HOK and the team of Gow Hastings Architects with Henning Larsen — have updated the plan with the elimination of some of the signature triangular windows, while simplifying the exterior expression around the ground floor.
