Construction is underway on the new Affinity Credit Union offices which will be located at 710 Duke Street in Saskatoon’s City Park. The construction plan, managed by Meridian Development will make use of the existing 49,000 square foot building on the site. Some additional space is being added at the North end of the building to accommodate what appears to be the main entrance to the offices.
As a former school, the parcel includes a fair bit of land that had previously been used for recreation. It looks like the construction plan will leave a lot of room for additional development to the North and to the East of the existing building. I expect that we’ll eventually see that land used for condominium development, but that’s only a guess.
The building was originally constructed in 1927 by the Saskatoon School Board as Wilson School. When the school amalgamated with North Park School in 1993, the property was purchased by the First Nations University of Canadawho used it as a school until 2011 when funding issues forced them to sell.
