After many failed redevelopment attempts, 'breathtaking' James Avenue Pumping Station welcomes first tenants
By: Bill Redekop | Posted: 04/16/2019 7:00 PM

Alston Properties came up with a plan that included purchasing lots on either side of the pumping station to locate a four-storey and a six-storey rental apartment. The apartments will be elevated off the ground so as not to block the pump house facade or view from inside.

That provided some of the economics. Then it had to find a single tenant in need of 10,000 square feet of office space. The office space is built in the rafters, held up by the building’s steel girders.

It would be too expensive to try to subdivide the space into multiple compartments. But the site was ideal for Think.Shift and its 55 employees.

The first phase of redeveloping the pump house cost $3 million. The entire project once apartment blocks are completed will come to $22 million, Alston said.

Both the building and the equipment inside are protected as a designated heritage site. Amid the giant steel wheels, there are also cranes running along horizontal beams with hooks and chains dangling down. They were used to move the giant wheels into place and left behind in case equipment ever needed servicing. The geared wheels weigh up to eight tonnes.
