A video recording the November 30 celebration of the University’s takeover of the former Windsor Star buildings is now available for viewing.
The video by Suede Productions captures the historic handover of keys to the complex from Star publisher Marty Beneteau to UWindsor president Alan Wildeman. Hundreds of students, staff, faculty, alumni and assorted well-wishers were on hand to witness the moment.
The property will be renovated to house programs in social work and the Centre for Executive and Professional Education in 2014, as the University extends its campus to the downtown core. See architect’s renderings of the transformed sites.
Photos of Friday’s event are available on the website of the downtown campus project. A similar event is planned for the transfer of ownership of the former Armouries and bus depot sites.
