uSask moving forward with hotel project

April 25, 2013

The University of Saskatchewan is sifting through 6 bids from developers proposing to construct a hotel in the university's College Quarter sector. uSask is in the midst of developing land into a village of sorts, including more student residents, shopping and commercial space, a new daycare centre, a new hotel, and an ice arena. A uSask official says he expects the institution will choose a developer within a couple of months. He says the hotel is a priority for College Quarter because the lease will generate income for uSask. The official hopes construction will begin by early 2014, with the hotel opening in 2015.
