The two newest residential development projects completed on campus, Liberty Pointe and Rockcliffe, are officially open.

Thompson Rivers University (TRU) Vice-President University Relations Brian Daly recently joined the Kelson Group and TRU Community Trust in a ceremony to open the two developments.

The developments are part of TRU Community Trust’s development, The Reach Neighbourhood at TRU. The Reach was created to enrich campus life and return funds to support university initiatives such as student bursaries and scholarships.

“The trust board would like to congratulate Kelson Group for completing another high-quality development and thank them for embracing the university’s vision by investing at TRU and helping to realize value from lands that are surplus to future academic needs,” says Brian Ross, director and former chair on the TRU Community Trust Board.

“As a result of Kelson Group’s and others’ commitment, the TRU Community Trust has been able to endow over $5.5 million thus far to the university and the TRU Foundation for student scholarships and bursaries, and research grants.”

Rockcliffe is a 40-suite residential condominium development and Liberty Point has 42 apartment rental suites. Both buildings were recognized in the Canadian Home Builders’ Association — Central Interior’s 2022 Housing Awards of Excellence.

“We have appreciated the work of so many people at Thompson Rivers University to make these projects come together somewhat seamlessly. Which is a tremendous compliment, considering residential, privately owned developments on campus are a newer concept for the university, and there were many logistics to consider as we built these buildings in a busy campus setting,” says Jason Fawcett, Kelson Group president.
