James Avenue Pumping Station plans include office, retail, homes..

Quote:

Details of a $17-million redevelopment of the James Avenue Pumping Station were revealed at City Hall Tuesday.

CentreVenture Development Corporation shared details of plans to add a six-storey and four-storey building around the structure, which offered fire protection for the city in the 1900s. The station was decommissioned in 1986 and the city has sought new uses for it for more than 20 years.......

Significant proposal for the East Exchange, hence thread worthy in my opinion...

A bold design by 546. It's nice to see that the Pump House will be preserved after all.

I just went from very excited to very disappointed... And they haven't even begun construction!

I'll say the same thing I say for every phased project... "maybe this time!!!"

That being said, Sky (next door) was 2 phases that were actually both built and basically on schedule.

They'll build what the market will bear.

Hey and if phase 1 means cleaning up the pump house with windows and lighting and some street scaping, that in it's self Is huge progress!

Yep. Phase 1 is the most important. Every dollar they sink into the pump house is a dollar someone down the line won't need. Makes the property easier to develop, even if this full plan never materializes.

Alston has leased a large amount of the office space in the pump house, so naturally that must come first. As that is underway, they will be designing the two apartment buildings, while trying to lease more commercial space.

its Alston Properties Ltd. and its one of the two companies developing it. They are working on 165 McDermot Ave currently if I am not mistaken.

Other company is Hofer Construction

Wolf13 Jul 28, 2016 8:50 PM

Yeah... a 6 and four storey building PLUS renovation is going to be much more than $17M...

buzzg Jul 28, 2016 9:42 PM

I'm pretty sure the province/city/CV grants will cover the restoration part of it. Plus heritage grants, etc.

True, maybe I misread it. Did it say it will require 17M on top of the grants? That would make more sense. Otherwise, grants ot not, 17M won't build that.

buzzg Jul 29, 2016 10:22 PM

I'm pretty sure the 17m is for what they are building: the two new buildings and the office space in the pumphouse.

buzzg Sep 1, 2016 5:49 PM

Work happening today here, there were construction workers popping out bricks on the north side.

TimeFadesAway Sep 1, 2016 8:17 PM

The architect is meeting with Sky residents to discuss the project on September 15.
