Changes Proposed For Downtown Parking Garage Storefronts

Monday March 11th, 2013, 11:00am

City of Windsor Administrators are recommending putting an end to commercial leases on the first floor of a downtown parking garage.

In a report to City Council, the Pelissier Street parking garage’s first floor, which currently houses a few commercial storefronts, has been plagued by years of mould growth, water leaks and a history of vacancy.

The report says that three of the eight commercial units in the garage are currently being rented.

Due to the water, mould, and low vacancy issues, City Administrators have prepared four options for Council to consider including transforming the entire first floor into parking, transforming only half of the first floor into parking with the other half remaining as residential, or continuing the commercial space as-is.

A fourth option, the one Administrators recommend, would cease “any use of the ground level, terminating utility services; winterizing the units; the commercial units glass exteriors will be painted white and month-to-month tenancies terminated.”

The fourth option would give City Council time to determine a more long-term solution for the garage. Councillors are set to debate the matter next Monday.
