Owner’s willingness to improve building applauded by Courtenay councillors

Courtenay council approved a development permit last week for renovations at the building housing RBC Dominion Securities.

Courtenay council approved a development permit last week for renovations at the building housing RBC Dominion Securities at the corner of Fitzgerald Avenue and Cumberland Road.

The project incorporates stone and wood with varied details and columns.

Owner Bob Ash has lost tenants to the other side of the river due to the unsightliness of the building. He said others would stay if renovations are completed and an elevator installed.

Coun. Doug Hillian — noting other facade improvements in the downtown core – applauds Ash’s willingness to reinvest in the building.

Coun. Manno Theos credits Ash for “adding to the attractive element of that particular corner.”
