By fortunate coincidence, the site of the old Toronto General Hospital was for sale as part of a redevelopment plan of the University Health Network, and the MaRS College of Founders took the initiative of securing the land to build a convergence centre. This became the physical anchor for the MaRS vision. The MaRS Centre will be a 1.5 million square-foot facility.’
