Construction of the new municipal centre at 2585 King Rd. is in full swing.
The increased space will allow staff to provide better customer service and add much needed public-use areas. These will include a larger council chamber and multi-use gymnasium/event space.
The two-storey building will be more than 46,000 square feet.
Many sustainability features are planned for the building and surrounding area. These include an electric vehicle charging station, a geo-thermal heating and cooling loop system, reforestation of some of the land and incorporating sustainable building materials and mechanical systems in the building.
The cost of the project is being financed using infrastructure and development charge reserves and the proceeds of the sale of the current property at 2075 King Rd. YRP will also make a capital contribution and sign a lease for its space.
The building construction is scheduled to be complete by the end of this year.
