The Sheridan College Hazel McCallion campus is set to expand rather ambitiously. The college recently announced that the Student and Athletics Centre is the latest phase of the Sheridan College Hazel McCallion Campus Expansion project, known as Phase 2A.
According to Sheridan, it offers “a dynamic series of student-focused spaces that complement the existing academic infrastructure while supporting and reinforcing the recently developed urban design objectives for the Sheridan Campus and the City of Mississauga.”
The social and wellness centre will span 70,000 ft2 and offer a mix of open, multipurpose, and smaller spaces. There will also be indoor and outdoor amenities and new building features.
Sheridan says specialty sport facilities, athletic studios, lockers and change rooms will be located on the third level together with a double height gym space and elevated running track. The upper level houses office space, a vestibule and a purpose-built senate room for the college.
Sheridan says phase 2A joins directly with Phase 2, sharing a portico at grade and two upper level connections.
The centre is also accessible via a main arterial, Rathburn Road, to the north and the future Scholar’s Green park expansion to the south. Open and covered walkways, a patio and outdoor turf field will also be constructed.
All this expansion will ensure that Square One will be vibrant area filled with young people bursting with energy. Fortunately, the venue will allow them to expend some or all of it. -CINEWS
