The facility is expected open to the public in the fall of 2023. After construction of main building is complete, the Norwood North and CHOICE buildings will be demolished and the Angus McGuggan building will be renovated and is expected to be completed in the 2025.

Visitors, and staff will access the temporary parking lots via 111th avenue and the Glenrose main driveway. Access to the staff lot is also available from 112th avenue.
