UVic announces redevelopment of Ian Stewart Complex into mixed-use district


The University of Victoria has announced that it will be redeveloping the Ian Stewart Complex into a mixed-use development. The redevelopment will transform nine acres into a mixed-use university district with commercial space and housing for the community. “Over the last couple of years, as we all know, housing has become more and more of an issue both in the region, as well as in the province,” said Mike Wilson, UVic director of campus planning and sustainability. “We hope to provide this site as an opportunity to provide housing solutions and more supply in the region.” Some community members have expressed concern about the loss of an ice rink, but Chek News reports that the rink has lasted beyond its expected lifespan and will be available to its users until 2026.
