uWindsor unveils preliminary renderings for downtown campus

April 20, 2012

Last Wednesday, University of Windsor president Alan Wildeman revealed the preliminary renderings of the institution's downtown campus. The Windsor Armouries will be transformed to house the newly merged Schools of Music and Visual Arts. Changes in store for this property include ample skylights and a vertical addition on the south end. Across the street, the former Greyhound bus depot's original art-deco façade will be restored, and a one-storey addition will be built to house uWindsor's film production program. The School of Social Work and the Centre for Professional and Executive Education will move into the Windsor Star building, whose historic façades will remain intact. Wildeman says the campus "will create an important cultural hub for our community, providing access to services and new ideas that speak to the quality of life, when it opens in the fall of 2014." uWindsor Daily News | Windsor Star
