Proposed for land currently being used as a parking lot for students and visitors, IC2 will contain 19 new lecture halls, classrooms, study spaces, lab rooms, and 124 faculty and staff offices. 

Plans show that the ground floor will include a cafe, and sloping areas for seating and flower beds.

Atop the fourth floor will be a huge green roof and gardens, with a mechanical roof and rooftop. 

Designed as a companion building to the UTSC Instructional Centre, which was designed by Diamond Schmitt Architects and completed in 2011, this new building will sit just north at the corner of Military Trail and Pan Am Drive.
