Committee Recommendations

The Government Management Committee recommends that:

 

1.  City Council authorize the Chief Corporate Officer to proceed with Phase 2, Demolition of the Existing North Market Building at 92 Front Street, of the Redevelopment of St. Lawrence Market North project, including demolition of the existing building and archaeological assessment of the site in advance of new construction.

Origin

(December 17, 2015) Report from the Chief Corporate Officer

Summary

The purpose of this report is to inform Council of the impact of archaeological assessment on the Redevelopment of St. Lawrence Market North project timelines and to obtain approval to demolish the existing North Market Building at 92 Front Street. subject to confirmation by the Architect that the construction cost estimate for the new building is within budget.

 

Cost confirmation for the new building, by way of a bid price following the tender process, prior to demolition requires confirmation of a construction start date. This cannot be done at this time due to the uncertainty associated with the delay to complete the archaeological assessment in advance of new construction.  The archaeological assessment requires the demolition of the existing building to allow full site access before Stage 4 archaeological fieldwork can safely occur.
