What would you like to see on the old McCormick lands?

OZ-8489_-_A._Watson_(PM)_-_1156_Dundas_St._(Ward_4).pdf_(page_4_of_4).jpgWhat is being proposed?

There are two things happening at the same time:

  1. the old McCormick building on Dundas St is in the process of being sold by the City of London to Sierra Construction for $1;
  2. the larger McCormick area is being studied, which will result in a secondary plan for the area.

As reported in the London Free Press by Pat Maloney, the building was closed in 2008 and later seized by the City of London after the former owner failed to pay over $750,000 in back taxes.

Sierra Construction has proposed a mix of commercial and residential uses on the site. 

What has happened so far?

Next Steps

A public site plan meeting will be held at the Planning and Environment Committee. The date is to be determined.
