School for the Contemporary Arts
SFU’s School for the Contemporary Arts will help bring new life to one of Vancouver’s most historic and venerated buildings. The school will become the anchor tenant in the redevelopment of the old Woodward’s department store site in downtown Vancouver.
The School for the Contemporary Arts will occupy approximately
150,000 square feet in the new development, and the space will
allow the school to house all of its degree programs that are currently
based in Burnaby. The new home at the Woodward's development will
allow the school to expand its current annual enrolment of 1,200
SFU's School for the Contemporary Arts offers undergraduate interdisciplinary degree programs in art and culture studies, dance, film, music, theatre, and visual art as well as a master's degree in interdisciplinary studies.
The SFU project budget will be about $45 million, while the total
development budget is now about $250 million. Construction is expected
to begin on the Woodward's redevelopment in the fall of 2005. The
School for the Contemporary Arts hopes to move into its new space
