What to do about ground level retail space in the Pelissier street parking garage heads back to City Council on Monday.

A report by city administration recommends that the eight commercial units be replaced by parking spaces.

Only three of the eight units are currently rented and the retail store fronts need major upgrades including waterproofing, repair wok to the walls, ceilings and  floors, new heating, ventilation and air conditioning units would need to be installed, as well as upgrades to electric and plumbing work, doors and windows at a cost of $1,852,000.

If council decides to turn the space to into parking, 42 spots would be created at a cost of $507,000.  The city says the area would have a screening treatment to make it safe and  aesthetically pleasing.

The city says that while there is no current demand for additional spaces, but they anticipate a future need for additional parking capacity downtown because of  Adventure Bay, city hall redevelopment and the University of Windsor’s downtown campus which start to open this fall.

The report goes to council on Monday, and should council deiced to remove the retail, the three existing tenants would be given six months notice to move.
