[St. John's] Fortis | 49m | 12 floors | U/C

Fortis Place - Under Construction


Fortis Properties Corporation announced today its submission of a development application to the City of St. John’s for the construction of a 12-storey, Class A office building at the corner bounded by Springdale Street, New Gower Street and Hamilton Avenue Extension, also known as the former Horwood Lumber site. This site is designated by the city’s Municipal Plan as an area allowing for additional building height to 12-storeys.

“This is an exciting growth opportunity for our Company, while adding much-needed Class A office space to the St. John’s market,” said Nora Duke, President and Chief Executive Officer. “This development offers the opportunity to further revitalize the west end of the downtown and will provide tenants a signature office environment in which to operate.”

The $50 million project will feature 145,000 square feet of Class A office space and include 183 parking spaces in line with municipal requirements. The building will be constructed to environmental and energy efficient standards and will exceed the Model National Energy Code for Buildings.

Height: 49m
Location: 5 Springdale Street, West Downtown
Fact: Fortis proposed this 12-storey office tower in west downtown after withdrawing a former proposal to develop a 15-storey office tower adjacent to their current office tower on Water Street. The development would have been the tallest building downtown, and would have required the demolition of several heritage properties. Fortis withdrew this proposal after much public outcry.
