Science complex takes shape
Its been a dusty, noisy, but productive summer at Concordias
Loyola campus, as construction began on the $85-million science complex.
Several hundred people turned out for the groundbreaking ceremony on the
first hot day of the summer, June 15 (photo, above). Part of the Bryan
Building was demolished over the summer. It will be incorporated into
the new building.
Lines of communication were established with residents in the normally
quiet Loyola area, to try to minimize the disruption. Excavation is ending
this week. The next step is to pour cement. You can watch the progress
of the science complex from the comfort of your desk, thanks to a webcam
Le Quartier site razed
Downtown, at what has been dubbed Le Quartier Concordia, the York Cinema
was demolished in late August to make way for a new engineering/visual
arts building. Excavation of the site will probably start early in 2002.
