The new Ryerson Gallery and Research Centre is starting to shape up as it prepares to open in September 2012. The project, located at 122 Bond Street, will join educational, research and exhibiting facilities under one roof. The building will house the renowned Black Star photo collection along with other important collections.

Without Black Star this would still be a great addition to the city. With Black Star Toronto scores a major coup. Thumbs up all the way.
