Morrison Hall. Not your average Animal House. by tmrother

Morrison Hall. Not your average ‘Animal House’.
Morrison Hall is relatively new student residence on 75 St. George Street in Toronto. This unusual iron gate hides the entrance to shipping/receiving area.
The main building is 13 floor tower completed in 2005 (Zeidler Partnership Architects).
A husband and wife Russell and Catherine Morrison (who are both around 90 years old now) donated many millions of dollars to the University of Toronto and this was one of their project. Who knows, where they lived during their days as students…
On this street, there were many changes during the last 30-40 years. There were old fraternity or ‘animal houses’ here. Practically all the 19th century houses are gone now, replaced by modern structures. Most of the properties belongs to the University and as student population grew, the old buildings had to go.
