Sale of Structure & Property – Former Antigonish Correctional Facility

Date: 8 March 2016

The Municipality of the County of Antigonish is again inviting proposals for the sale and redevelopment of the former Antigonish Correctional Facility. All proposals must be received in their entirety on or before Friday, March 18, 2016 at 4:00PM.

Interest was received from proponents wishing to purchase and repurpose the facility shortly after it was announced that the Municipality was planning to demolish the building in summer 2016. This is the second time the Municipality has issued an RFP for the sale and redevelopment of the facility. Redevelopment will also affect the future use of the County Court House on Main Street, Antigonish. For these reasons, the Municipality is launching an expedited process with short timelines.

The Municipality’s objective is to have the property redeveloped in a manner that is beneficial to the well-being of the community. As such, the proposed use(s) of the facility and property are key, as is the ability of the developer to complete the proposal in a timely fashion.

“When we were notified that there was still an opportunity to sell and redevelop the facility we were naturally optimistic,” said Warden Russell Boucher. “It is a beautiful old building and it would be a shame to see it torn down,” he added. “Regardless of the outcome we need to do what is best for the Municipality and its residents and have this addressed in a timely fashion.”

In February, the Municipality announced it would be tendering the demolition of the former Antigonish Correctional Facility. An RFP for the redevelopment of the facility was issued by the Municipality in May 2015 and did not result in a successful proposal. The building opened in 1948 and was decommissioned on January 9, 2015. The correctional facility sits on a neighboring property to the Antigonish County Courthouse, which is a National Historic Site and still functions for court purposes. Additional details can be found in the Request for Proposals.
