Demolition of Northbridge Hotel starts this week

Demolition is starting this month on the former Northbridge Hotel on Tranquille Road.

The property at 377 Tranquille Road was purchased by the city in 2021 to create new housing opportunities.

The hotel site will become a market redevelopment while a nearby property at 3467 Campbell Road will become home to an 80-unit rental project.

The city says people should not expect to see the structure completely gone until this summer because much of the work will be debris removal and abatement inside the building.

Fences are expected to go up by the end of March.

Residents won’t notice much of an impact on the neighbourhood for the first four months. The city says they will have security on site during the abatement process.

It’s extremely important that no one other than the professional abatement and demolition contractors enter the building or site during abatement and demolition,” said Matt Kachel, the city’s capital projects manager.

“We know this building contains hazardous materials, such as asbestos. While this work poses no health risk to anyone outside the building, proper precautions need to be taken inside.”

Once demolition gets underway, there will be some traffic impacts on Tranquille Road including closures and changes to traffic patterns. Those details will be announced within the next couple of days.
