Statement regarding building destroyed by fire
The building project at Princess and Victoria Streets that was destroyed by fire on Dec. 17 has been incorrectly identified in media reports as a Queen’s-affiliated residential development. The project under construction was a privately owned development geared towards young adults. Due in large part to incorrect information in media reports shortly after the fire broke out, several outlets, many of them national and international, have called the building Queen’s student housing, a Queen’s residence, or a Queen’s dorm. We will continue to contact individual outlets asking them to correct this misinformation as quickly as possible.
