Peterborough Economic Development (PED) has announced they will be relocating both locations—PED’s corporate office at 210 Wolfe Street, as well as the Peterborough & the Kawarthas Tourism (PKT) Visitor Centre located at 1400 Crawford Drive—to the VentureNorth building in downtown Peterborough.
Renovations to exterior of VentureNorth building
This move will unify the team, and cost-effectively consolidate operations under one roof at 270 George Street North.
PED and PKT will now be located on the main floor of VentureNorth, as an anchor tenant of the new downtown business hub in the former Promenade building located at 270 George Street North. VentureNorth aims to make doing business in Peterborough easier for startups and existing businesses, allowing clients to access a suite of services and resources in a single location.
The new location will be open to the public on Monday, May 8th at 8:30 a.m. The Visitor Centre will close their doors to walk-in traffic at 1400 Crawford Drive on Friday, April 28th at 4:30 p.m. in order to prepare for the move and setup in the new location.
PED’s team is committed to a seamless transition. For this reason, the relocation will be phased-in, working with the VentureNorth’s construction team to have a service-oriented timeline for the move. In the transition time, PED staff will continue to be available by phone, email and by appointment.
