    There are so many good ideas within these preliminary plans. I’m particularly fond of the idea of creating a plaza at West Campus. I would humbly submit that replacing the asphalt in that particular stretch with paving (as has been done with university avenue) would further cement the sense of place.

    Having recently visited Western and seeing prospective students clambering for photo-ops at their famous richmond gates I yearn also for more boundary and place-marking elements on campus. A re-purposed John A. Avenue would go a long way to raising w. campus’ profile.

      Thanks, Qfan! We’re glad you like the direction we’re heading. Be sure to check back here in the fall as we present the final work.

      As for boundary and gateway elements, this is a topic we’ve been discussing in our study so far. The idea of John A. McDonald as a ceremonial entry avenue is something we’re exploring, and something Queen’s is keen to work with the City on.
