Sidney to sell Third Street fire hall lands to offset cost of new Community Safety Building
Published November 15, 2017
The Town of Sidney is seeking expressions of interest from developers to repurpose two city-owned parcels on Third Street at Sidney Avenue in the municipality's downtown core.
Currently housing the town’s fire hall and a surface parking lot, the township hopes to offset the cost of its new Community Safety Building – currently under construction south of the Mary Winspear Centre at Beacon Avenue and Highway 17 – through the sale of both properties.
Totalling over 42,400 square feet, the land is zoned for commercial and residential uses with permitted building heights of up to six-storeys.
Expressions of interest from developers will be sought until January 31, 2018. If proposals are satisfactory to City staff, a short list of finalists will be presented for consideration, or a preferred single finalist will advance to the agreement of purchase and sale stage.
Sidney’s fire brigade has been situated at the Third Street site since the late 1930’s. The existing fire hall was built in 1990 and will be replaced by a $14 million Community Safety Building by the spring of 2019. C
