229 Richmond Street WestReturn To Projects
In October 2019, City Council approved the acquisition of a privately-held property located at 229 Richmond St. West, which operated as a surface parking lot. At the same meeting, City Council also approved a staff recommendation to move forward with the disposition of the City-owned property at 260 Adelaide St. West and to relocate the fire station currently located on that site to Metro Hall.
The acquisition of 229 Richmond St. West will enable the City to create a much-needed park in a rapidly growing area of the downtown core.
