Play a part in preserving Calgary’s history
The 1950s-era gas station building from the Eamon’s Bungalow Camp is being offered as a unique long-term leasing opportunity by The City of Calgary.
The City has issued a Request for Pre-Qualification (RFPQ) to gauge public interest in utilizing the building in the area of the new LRT extension north Park & Ride lot. The RFPQ is aimed at finding an entrepreneur interested in restoring and operating a business in the building. Please visit www.purchasingconnection.ca (search for AB-2012-04648) to view and respond to the RFPQ. The RFPQ closes Oct. 10, 2012.
The building will be located in the Rocky Ridge Park & Ride lot next to the new Tuscany CTrain station, which will open for Transit service in the fall of 2014.
“The building is being moved off-site so that work on the Tuscany Station and the Park & Rides can proceed,” says Anne Cataford, Manger of LRT Projects. “Although the intent is to return the building to the site in a new location, a final use for the building is yet to be determined. The RFPQ is intended to gauge the level of interest from businesses or individuals in restoring and using the Eamon’s building as a business in the Rocky Ridge Park & Ride.”
Responses to the RFPQ will be evaluated against a set of criteria and the proposals that meet those criteria will be invited to reply to a Request for Proposal.
