George Brown College, which has two main campuses in Toronto, and is busy adding a third on the waterfront. Just to the east of the recently completed Corus Quay, and surrounded by Waterfront Toronto's brilliant new Sugar Beach, Waterfront Promenade, and Sherbourne Common, George Brown's arrival on Queens Quay means that the regeneration of Toronto's East Bayfront is progressing solidly. With Great Gulf preparing to launch sales across the street at their Monde condominium site, it may be sooner than anyone expects that we may actually be able to call are a neighbourhood.
UrbanToronto photographers Redroom and Cruzin4U were recently in the area to give us a close-up look at what has been going on with the Health Sciences complex. The campus is designed by Stantec Architecture / KPMB Architects - Architects in Joint Venture. First, Redroom's view from the Polson Street dock.
Cruzin4U got his shots from closer up, first from Sherbourne Common to the east
These shots show the dramatic criss-crossing scissor stairs from the north.
Those stairs are a surprise, not having appeared in the renderings for the building. You can find the renderings in UrbanToronto's new dataBase listing for this site. Look for the link below, where you'll also see the link to our Projects and Construction forum thread. It has more recent images, and discussion on the project.
