|Richard and Anke Lex are pleased to announce that the Town of Collingwood has accepted their Tremont RFP proposal - a model of heritage preservation and environmental sustainability.|
The project involves the preservation, restoration and revitalization of an important designated building in the Collingwood Heritage Conservation District and its adaptive reuse to provide commercial opportunities and live/work space for the creative sector. The building will incorporate sustainable and environmental measures along with heritage preservation. Some of the green energy components that the building will feature include solar PV and solar thermal as well as grey water recycling and heat recovery.
The plan also allows the Town of Collingwood to retain over three quarters of the property for downtown parking with a small parkette proposed between the Tremont and the new Collingwood Library. The purchase is expected to close by the end of June with work beginning immediately after.
The restoration of the building’s 1889 facade will be protected by a heritage conservation easement agreement with the Town of Collingwood.
Richard and Anke are excited equally about the restoration of the exterior; bringing back its original beauty and the interior; creating an exciting vibrant space for new ideas.
