The next stage in the growing development of South Campus is a new 30,000-square-foot community centre.
The new centre is slated to have a gym, general meeting and multipurpose rooms along with a dance studio and café space. Construction of the centre is set to start this winter.
Charles Menzies, a campus resident since 1996, said that current community facilities on campus are limited and cramped. The Wesbrook area is expected to grow to 6,250 households over the next 15 years.
