Clint, Jaime and I got our first glimpse of the Paterson Global Foods Institute. It is definitely “a work in progress” at this point but I think it will be stunning when it’s finished. The new campus, located in downtown Winnipeg, will house our Hospitality programs, namely Culinary Arts, Hospitality and Tourism Management and Professional Baking and Patisserie. The campus will also be home to Red River College’s first residence! Paterson GlobalFoods Institute will join the Roblin Centre (160 Princess Street) as the second campus in the heart of the Exchange District – an addition to our Exchange District Campus.
We took a few pictures of us on our tour and we wanted to show you some of the original architecture that will be preserved in the building. We’ll post more pictures in the coming months as they make progress on the building. I can’t wait for our next tour!!
