BrandonU moves to acquire significant land in downtown Brandon

February 8, 2017

Brandon University is set to significantly increase its footprint in downtown Brandon through the acquisition of five parcels of land. A BrandonU release states that the land transfers will come at “minimal dollar value to facilitate the initiative while not straining the University’s financial resources.” “This is a truly exciting opportunity that we are ready to seize,” said BrandonU President Gervan Fearon. “We are building on the priorities of our Academic Plan and on the themes emerging from our Campus Master Plan to serve as a catalyst for growth and innovation, and to leverage the University’s capacity in support of community development. We will be pursuing a large-scale mixed-use and residence development in the downtown core that is good for BU students, faculty and staff, and for our partners.” BrandonU
