MLSE Launchpad – Toronto, ON
This month’s featured installation is the MLSE Launchpad located in Toronto, ON. Opened in early 2017 this 42,000 sq. ft. facility is touted as the “first facility of its kind in North America, specifically developed to deliver Sport For Development youth programming seven days a week, with a focus on four pillars: Healthy Body, Healthy Mind, Ready For School and Ready For Work.”
The facility houses three sport courts, classrooms, a nutrition hub, and an adventure wall. Forum Athletic was proud to provide eight ceiling mounted backstops for the sports courts. Some unique building design features were overcome in order complete the work, but in the end, Forum was up to the challenge.
