Paterson GlobalFoods Institute Poised to Revitalize Exchange District

April 27, 2012

Renovations continue at the Paterson GlobalFoods Institute, future home of Red River College’s Hospitality and Culinary Arts programs.

Earlier this week, local media outlets were treated to a tour of the facility, which is scheduled to be operational by January 2013.

The $35-million makeover of the historic Union Bank Tower is considered one of downtown Winnipeg’s most ambitious revitalization projects. Once complete, the new facility will boast state-of-the-art classroom and lab space, two street-level restaurants, a rooftop patio and garden, and seven floors of student residences.
