New location for uWaterloo Stratford site

July 22, 2010

Plans to build the University of Waterloo's Stratford campus on a parcel of land in the northeast corner of the St. Patrick Street parking lot have changed. At a meeting last week, Stratford city council declared another piece of land, known as Block 2, surplus to sell to uWaterloo for $1. Block 2 is west of the land originally proposed for the development, overlapping about 18 metres. The new location will see uWaterloo constructing on land boarded by St. Patrick and Cooper streets. City officials say the new location is better for servicing, building orientation, future expansion, and site planning. Stratford Gazette
