George Brown is expanding its Waterfront Campus with a carbon-neutral wood building called The Arbour. It will be the first Tall Wood Building used for institutional purposes in Ontario.
The planned 12-storey structure will produce the same amount of energy, or more than, it consumes. It will also provide students with research and learning opportunities in climate-friendly building practices during the construction process and once it’s complete.
The Arbour is part of our plan to create a low-carbon campus. This fall we’re launching an international design competition to select the firm to complete the project.
