Crescent School Acquires Bob Rumball Centre Property

Thanks in part to a transformational gift from alumnus Ming Wai Lau ’97, Crescent School has acquired the seven-acre Bob Rumball Centre property located at 2395 Bayview Avenue in Toronto, bordering the north end of Crescent’s campus.

“To us, this isn’t about investing in real estate. This is about making a meaningful investment in boys' education. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that will forever shape the future of Crescent School,” said Headmaster Michael Fellin P’24. “We are exploring several options for the site, driven primarily by our 25-year Master Campus Plan to improve and expand our school’s curricular and co-curricular programs.”

The acquisition was announced on May 26, 2021. The Bob Rumball Canadian Centre of Excellence for the Deaf will remain onsite for three to five years before Crescent assumes the use of the property.

The Rumball property acquisition is valued at just over $42 million. Ming Wai Lau ’97 has pledged $12 million toward the cost of the property; the rest will be funded through donations and financing.
