Niagara College welcomed a new addition to its land holdings with its $18.1-million purchase of the Niagara Corporate Business Centre.

The 33-acre property on Glendale Avenue East, adjacent to the NOTL campus, was bought from Trivieri Investments Limited, a St. Catharines-based company.

The land has a three-storey building with 18 businesses and agencies inside, including Niagara Emergency Medical Services, as well as some of the college’s administrative offices.

There are no immediate short-term changes planned to the building’s operation, said Andrew Korchok, a communications consultant at Niagara College.

The college is also planning to work with Niagara Region and the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake on the long-term plans for the land.

“We don’t know what exactly we’re going to use it for yet but it offers that potential to expand our Niagara-on-the-Lake campus and open different possibilities in the future,” Korchok told The Lake Report. He noted the college’s student population is growing and the college has to meet that demand, but there are “no immediate plans to expand our residences.”

The college is expected to take over ownership on Aug. 23.
