uWindsor to demolish residences in need of extensive renovations

December 18, 2015

The University of Windsor has announced that it will permanently close and demolish Clark Residence after conducting a feasibility study on the status of the building. Clark Buildings I and II, built in the 1980s, will be demolished due to “the age of the buildings, the extensive nature of renovations needed, and the shifting demographics of students seeking residence accommodation,” according to uWindsor. Clark Residence, closed earlier this year, originally accommodated about 150 residents, and the school claims that there is adequate space to meet resident needs for next fall. As with Electa Hall, which was also closed earlier this year, the land space for Clark Residence will be reportedly be retained as a green space for future needs. uWindsor | CBC | Windsor Star
