OCAD University's building at the corner of Dundas and McCaul streets will be given an overhaul in the next couple of years, with Toronto firm Bortolotto Architect as the principal architects. Bortolotto have previous successes with other Toronto post-secondary institutes (like the University of Toronto), and also designed OCAD's Digital Media Research & Innovation Institute (DMRII), so they were seen as a natural fit for this project.
The building, at 115 McCaul Street, is currently used primarily as administrative and corporate head offices; the conversion will transform it into a student-focused centre with studios and event spaces, and will also update the building's facade to harmonize with OCAD's iconic Sharp Centre for Design right down the street. Work is expected to be completed by the fall of 2015.
