University of Windsor law school may relocate downtown
Sources tell CBC News the faculty may be moving into Paul Martin building in downtown core
The University of Windsor faculty of law may be moving to the Paul Martin federal building on Ouellette Ave, sources tell CBC News.
But, all Eddie Francis will say is that he is in discussions with University of Windsor president Alan Wildeman about locating another campus to the downtown district.
"The mayor and I have discussed how to bring a new faculty downtown and we have a very clear understanding of that," said Wildeman.
That's in addition to new campuses being developed in the former Windsor Star building, the armouries and the Greyhound bus depot.
In his annual state of the city address yesterday, Francis told an audience of more than 500 that a new and more modernized central library will also be relocated somewhere downtown.
There's also a plan for a new city hall.
It will be located at the parking lot adjacent to the existing building.
The mayor says it should be ready by 2017.
An undisclosed tenant will share the new building.
