Former Grace Site to Become Urgent Care Centre

Friends, Some more excellent news for the west-end. It was recently announced that the former Grace site on University Avenue will become the future Urgent Care Centre under the Mega Hospital Plan. Between this announcement, the new medical centre announcement (see previous post), penalty box opening and some University of Windsor campuses moving downtown, it looks like University Avenue will shortly be a booming and bustling street! This is all great news for the west-end and could be the catalyst of many more positive developments. We should all be very happy and hopeful with this great news. Here are some links featuring the plans. Fabio
