West Campus Development: Updated

The 11 July edition of the Herald ran an article sketching a very positive potential future for the lands around Children’s Hospital (to check it out, click here).   For a briefer version  with more backstory (and maps!), have a look at the 13 July entry in the Everyday Tourist blog, here.  Could Montgomery be the future neighbours to the next Kensington?  Only time will tell.

Update (Aug. 1):  The Planning Commission approved the West Campus application on July 31.  It will go before City Council on September 8.  We’ll let you know how that comes out, once we hear.
