Come walk with us as we stroll down Toronto’s ceremonial boulevard and explore the buildings, landscapes and artwork that define one of Toronto’s most unique thoroughfares: University Avenue. Discover the stories behind the architecture – from the origins and growth of hospital row to the city bylaws behind the light coloured facades that line the boulevard. We’ll help you see our grand avenue as you have never seen it before!

This tour features buildings and landscapes from the 1950s to 2018 – and we even give you a glimpse of some of the projects to come in the coming years! Some highlights include Sick Kids Atrium (Zeidler Roberts Partnership, 1993), Shell Oil Building (Marani & Morris, 1961), the University Avenue Medians (Dunnington-Grubb & Stensson, 1961) and the Four Season Centre for the Perfoming Arts (Diamond Schmitt Arhcitects, 2006).
