uWinnipeg leases "hot property" downtown

December 18, 2007

The University of Winnipeg has signed a 10-year lease on a sought-after piece of downtown property.  The university is considering using what used to be the United Army Surplus Sales building for a variety of purposes, including classrooms, a new downtown bookstore, office space or a café.  A retired metal structure on the building's roof may be put to use as a video billboard.
