19 Nov New university campus for 3,400 students to open at Vancouver House (Daily Hive)
When University Canada West‘s (UCW) new campus within the base of Vancouver House opens next year, it will mark the single largest new post-secondary institution expansion in downtown Vancouver in a decade.
UCW is turning 90,000 sq. ft. of commercial space within the two six-storey, triangular-shaped buildings, part of the Vancouver House redevelopment by local developer Westbank, into institutional academic space.
There will be over 3,400 new students within this new campus, making it the anchor tenant of the redevelopment — supporting the promised vibrancy from Vancouver House’s cluster of new retail, restaurants, businesses, and residents that form the so-called Beach District.
