The main floor will be open to the public during regular business hours and public amenities include public washrooms, ATM, water filling stations and seating areas.

Note: due to COVID-19, the water filling stations will not be operational until further notice

Realignment of Wascana Drive

As part of the Conexus Building Communities project, Wascana Drive was re-aligned, improving traffic and pedestrian flow. The new College Avenue and Wascana Drive intersection was straightened and signalled making it much safer for pedestrians and creating a welcoming gateway into the park. Additionally, the new Wascana Drive has public parking available on both sides of the street.

With the road realignment, we also put a brand new water supply line in, which also will feed into Wascana Pool.

Parking

No new parking lots were built for this project, with parking being developed under the Conexus building. Conexus will also be renting spaces from existing University of Regina parking lots south of the building. The rented spaces will be available for the public to use outside business hours on evenings and weekends. 

The Atrium Link to Darke Hall

Darke Hall is a cultural and heritage landmark in Saskatchewan and the building’s link is a crucial piece of the Conexus building design. Linking through a shared atrium, Darke Hall will now be accessible, allowing everyone to enjoy a performance. The expanded lobby and crush space will enhance the patron experience, providing a space to mingle during performance intermissions and more. Additionally, the Darke Hall link can also serve as a winter garden, public gathering space and a presentation venue.

Once completed, the atrium link to Darke Hall and plaza can be rented and will be bookable through the University of Regina. Details are still underway and will be updated once available.

Supporting Entrepreneurs

Conexus' business incubator, Cultivator, will use over 15,000 square feet of the building. Cultivator is the first credit union led business incubator and supports in the development and mentoring of Sasktchewan entrepreneurs.

Cultivator will be located on the north side of the building, occupying portions of the ground and second floors. The Business Incubator is the first-of-its-kind in Regina and will support in the developing and mentoring of Saskatchewan entrepreneurs. It will be located on the north side of the building, occupying portions of the ground and second floor levels. The space will include flex space and pitch space.
