at the new home for City of Prince Rupert Public Works on Portage Road
The City of Prince Rupert has shared a few more details on their plans to lease the old MacCarthy GM building on Portage Road, taking over the facility which has been empty since the car dealership shut its doors in December of 2020.
Yesterday through a late afternoon information release, the City expanded on their plans with an overview on the nature of the five year lease with a potential to purchase the location.
The City has begun it’s first steps to move our Public Works operation to the vacated MacCarthy GM Building, with a 5 year lease for the property signed this week, including an exclusive option for purchase.
This lease option is anticipated to save the City significant time as a fully new build of a Public Works facility would first require identifying appropriate lands, to be followed by architectural designs and obtaining contracting services.
