New courthouse planned for downtown
June 13, 2008
Downtown Kitchener will be the site of the new consolidated courthouse, Kitchener Centre MPP John Milloy announced today.
The multi-million-dollar courthouse will be built on a 3.3-acre site bounded by Frederick, Weber, Duke and Scott streets. A parking lot and some offices, including a lawyer’s office, now occupy the site.
This state-of-the-art facility will bring three existing courthouses – two in Kitchener and one in Cambridge – under one roof.
The province has purchased the site and Milloy said the tendering process to seek proposals from the private sector to build the facility will be starting soon.
Construction is slated to start in 2010.
