The University of Victoria is embarking on a downtown Victoria presence with an initiative under partnership with Club Kwench, a co-working space on Store Street at Discovery Street.
“With a move into Victoria’s downtown core, the University of Victoria will accelerate collaboration and entrepreneurship by bringing together academics, industry and other partners within the community,” states a release from the university.
A media event is planned for Wednesday afternoon to reveal additional details of the initiative.
Heard there are some serious delays on this project, anyone have details?
Looks like UVIC signed a construction management contract for this project in 2018 with Kinetic and Ellisdon. Without a fixed price contract in place at the onset I wonder how the budget is looking now.
A single phase of construction in lieu of two will shorten the construction of two mixed-use UVic buildings by 16 months.
UVic's upcoming residential buildings will rise to nine and eleven-storeys and include modernized classrooms, meeting spaces and a new dining hall.
