Ontario has plans to build the first elementary school inside of a condo building on Toronto’s waterfront. The provincial government announced the new project on Friday as a part of an effort to create more educational spaces in the downtown area. The Lower Yonge Precinct Elementary School will welcome 455 students to their Yonge and Harbour streets location.
The completion date of the project is expected to be before the 2024-25 school year. Ontario’s Education Minister Stephen Lecce said “with many families living in condos and high-density urban communities, we believe their children deserve access to modern and safe schools in the heart of their communities,”
In addition to the elementary school on the third floor of the building, there will be a space for a child care centre on the second floor. Mayor John Tory said “If we want to build up this city and our neighbourhoods, we need to ensure that residents have access to all services they need, including schools, this is one example of how we will achieve this,”
