  • Main Street Clock Inc. Development Update

    Created: Thursday, October 10, 2019

    Updated: October 21, 2019

    The Town of Newmarket is continuing its thorough investigation into the unauthorized demolition of 184/186 Main Street, part of the Main Street Clock Inc. development.

    The Town previously issued orders on buildings related to the Main Street Clock Inc. as a result of unauthorized demolition. The Main Street Clock Inc. renovation project is under three separate building permits (184/186, 188/190/192 and 194) - please see diagram. 
     
    Stop Work Orders remain in place on two of the buildings (184/186 and 188/190/192), as the Town continues its investigation.
     
    In order to preserve the heritage aspects of the middle building (188/190/192) and maintain safety, the Chief Building Official has authorized bracing work to proceed, but the Stop Work Order remains in place. This work could begin as early as Tuesday, October 22, 2019. The Town will have a significant presence throughout this work.
     
    The remaining building (194) was previously issued an Order to Comply under the Ontario Building Code. The requirements have now been met and the Town does not have any legal grounds to stop work at this address. Construction on this building is nearing completion and it is in the best interest of the Town and Main Street for it to proceed.
     
    The Town is strongly committed to protecting the heritage of the Downtown Area to ensure it is preserved, restored and beautified.
     
    More information will be provided to the community once the investigation is complete.
