The University of Windsor is looking to enhance the appearance of the campus, create more green space and make it more pedestrian friendly, and part of this plan includes the possible closure of Sunset Avenue between Fanchette and Wyandotte streets.
The University’s vision is to create attractive walkway in this area to support a pedestrian-friendly environment.
With the addition of the possible closure of Sunset, four old residential houses on Sunset next the Odette School of Business which currently house several university offices will be demolished next year making the way for more campus green space. In addition when a new campus parking garage is compete in one year’s time, several smaller lots on Sunset including the current visitor lot will be closed and converted to green space.
These improvements are just part of the work that has been undertaken on campus to prepare it for the next 50 years.
Improvements have been made to the Student Center Courtyard, a newly redesigned garden was planted outside the Leddy Library’s front entrance, the demolition of Cody Hall took place, as did the demolition of the old Drama building, construction began on the new parking garage and work is almost complete on the new Ed Lumley Centre for Engineering Innovation.
The University of Windsor is holding an open house to show off their plans for the next 50 years on Wednesday September 19th from 4pm to 7pm in the CAW Centre’s Ambassador Auditorium.
