Ryerson students who want to make Gould Street into a permanent pedestrian mall for students temporarily put a road closed sign to make their intentions known. It is one of the options the university is considering as part of its long-range master plan.



Ontario’s taxpayers are giving a $45-million boost to Ryerson University’s plans for turning the old Sam The Record Man’s store on Yonge Street into a student centre and library.



Premier Dalton McGuinty announced the grant yesterday, saying it’s about time the school had a presence on Toronto’s main drag after so many years occupying several adjacent city blocks.



Ryerson announced last week it bought the former Sam’s location at the corner of Yonge and Gould streets, as well as three other properties, including a former Future Shop store next to Sam’s, for $40 million as the university develops a 20-year master plan to refresh its campus.
