Brandon University has engaged the University of Winnipeg Community Renewal Corporation (UWCRC), through its sister organization, UWCRC 2.0, to support additional consultation sessions and to develop further details and plans for the downtown Brandon initiative.
“We welcome the opportunity to apply the expertise we have gained over the past dozen years to the development vision of the University of Brandon,” said Sherman Kreiner, UWCRC Managing Director. “We share many development principles, from sustainability to accessibility to good urban design within a context of fiscal sustainability. Among our many development initiatives, we have carefully designed successful, large-scale mixed income residences. This is all too rare in Canada. We are so pleased that the University of Brandon is taking a leadership role in values-based development and look forward to working together to create an innovative vision for revitalizing downtown Brandon.”
