owner Kent Bendell stated that should the business be forced to move from its long-time location at Pendergast and Cook streets, "I’d simply relocate."
Although the development concept is in its infancy, recently built or approved projects in the Village are in the form of low-rise four and five-storey condominium buildings with ground floor retail spaces. It is anticipated Aragon’s proposal would seeks approvals for a similarly-sized structure, although it is too early to confirm whether residential units will be comprised of rental apartments or market condominiums.
Aragon is currently seeking input on its plans from nearby residents and businesses, and formulating a proposal that will be presented to municipal staff by late this year or by early 2018. C
