Huge news for the downtown. AON Inc. and the Peterborough County-City Health Unit announced Monday (January 5th) that they have reached a new conditional deal for the purchase of the first three floors of the downtown office building at 185 King St.
Once finalized, the new location will allow the Health Unit to bring all programs under one roof and make it easier for residents to access public health services.
The offer is conditional on financing. “We are optimistic that funding can be secured promptly in order to remove the conditions on the offer and finalize a deal,” say Brent Woodford, Director of Corporate Services in a release. “We are very pleased about the potential relocation to the downtown core and have our programs and clinics closer to related community services and more accessible by transit.”
Brad Smith, President of AON Inc., echoed these sentiments. “This deal is an integral addition to the development of Downtown Peterborough and we look forward to finalizing the sale and being a part of the relocation of these important services for the benefit of the community.”
