Podcast: Warehouse District Revolution

More than $33M in funding was announced to deal with the rail yards located in the middle of Regina, at the southern edge of the Warehouse District. Development of the land is estimated to take more than 15 years, and that has some people frustrated.

Business and residents have been floating ideas for years about what could happen to this open space, including high rise, mixed-income housing for people who work downtown, to greenspace, and the now-dashed hopes for the football stadium.

Leasa Gibbons, the Executive Director of the Regina Warehouse Business District, shares her thoughts about the rail yard, how the money should be spent and how it could change the Dewdney strip for the better.
