New GBC campus on the Toronto Waterfront

The Toronto Star published a story last week on plans for a new GBC campus located at the Toronto waterfront. The story reflects plans for locating the health sciences faculty within a newly revitalized waterfront area. A College presence there will play a significant role in the development of the Waterfront:

"To have students on the waterfront would make it absolutely vital; they would animate the area year-round, not just in summer," said Marisa Piattelli, vice-president of government relations, communications and strategic initiatives for Waterfront Toronto, the public agency that manages Toronto's lakeshore.

Such a move will also help the College continue student enrollment growth, since at the moment we are space-constrained.

This is great news for everyone who work and live in the area! Local people such as me welcome new faces to the place because it's always good to freshen up stereotype a bit. :) I work nearby as a Toronto real estate agent and I spend a lot of time hanging out in the area of Waterfront condos. And honestly, I'm really curious whether this building is going to be built at the expense of local greenery or not. Hopefully, we will see in time. Best regards folks,
