Mixed-use residential, retail and office complex pitched for Sidney's old fire hall site
A mixed-use condominium, retail and office development has been proposed for Sidney’s old fire hall site recently sold to offset the cost of a new Community Safety Building, Citified has learned.
The 42,400 square square foot property on Third Street at Sidney Avenue has served as the location of the town’s fire hall since the 1930’s. If newly-unveiled plans by developers Fraser McColl and Dan Robbins are approved, the land could soon be transformed into 85-units of housing, nearly 17,000 square feet of retail space and 2,500 square feet of office space.
