A groundbreaking ceremony at The Reach development at Thompson Rivers Universityon Friday marked the beginning of construction of Kelson Group’s 77-suite, five-storey multi-family rental building on the north side of TRU’s Old Main Building.
The company’s goal is to welcome its first residents to Legacy Square in late 2019.
The Reach is a 25-year plan to create 3,500 multi-family housing units, retail and office spaces, as well as other services, on the TRU campus.
Legacy Square is the second building to break ground at The Reach. Construction began last October on the four-storey, 57,000-square-foot Creston House development. It will consist of 50 contemporary condominium homes available for purchase by anyone in the community.
