KAMLOOPS — Thompson Rivers University says shovels will go into the ground this summer for the first phase of the university's multi-faceted development project The Reach.

Cape Construction has been selected to build a four-storey market condo development, totalling 57-thousand square feet.

The university says this phase alone will generate $20 million in economic activity for Kamloops.

It's the first step in a 25-year plan for a more complete urban community, including retail, service and residential components in a walkable community.
