Hi-rises should have been built on that Camosun campus. Now there isn't enough learning space there so the main campus has been built way out in the Burbs in Saanich. Adding to the massive Saanich Sprawl.
They were proposing regular residential
, not campus space. Remember, this was before Camosun. I wouldn't be surprised if they were planning on demolishing the Young Building
around that time. If they had built those residential highrises, Camosun's entire
campus would likely have been built out in the burbs.

Susan Perkins used to wait in line for 45 minutes to use the computer science lab in the University of Victoria's engineering wing.
This fall, the fourth-year software engineering student has no waits and all the equipment she needs to complete her assignments in the new state-of-the art $25-million UVic Engineering/Computer Science building.
"This atmosphere is highly conducive to learning," Perkins said yesterday at the building's opening ceremony, attended by Advanced Education Minister Murray Coell and UVic president David Turpin.
