New renderings were released Tuesday for a new office development going into Saskatoon’s former police headquarters.
The 42-year-old building was bought by Duchuck Holdings Ltd. in 2016 for $10.7 million. Work inside the building has been underway for some time, and work on the exterior will begin next month after the local developer finalized plans.
“Work has been ongoing inside with the demolition of the interior improvements and complete installation of a new heating, cooling and utility services,” said ICR managing partner Barry Stuart.
In addition to the energy efficient improvements, Stuart said the design inside is stunning featuring floor to ceiling glass walls.
While Stuart points out office vacancy is high in Saskatoon, he said there is a market for green-friendly office space.
“When we narrowed down to the specific class A down office sector, it’s currently only at 6.1 per cent.”
River Quarry on 4th is expected to be ready for occupancy sometime this year.
Stuart added plans for the adjacent 20-floor office building are ready to go once a tenant can be secured.
