100 Gordon Street

100 Gordon Street was a City-owned property, in downtown Nanaimo, directly across the street from the Vancouver Island Conference Centre.  Great Canadian Casino and Port Place Shopping Centre are to the south across Cameron Road.  The Port Theatre, Library and Diana Krall Plaza are to the north across Museum Way.

The City of Nanaimo issued a Request for Offers for 100 Gordon Street. Proponents were asked to provide background information on their proposed project, timing and the price they were willing to pay for the property. Offers were required to be submitted by January 27, 2017. Six proposals were received by the deadline.

At the June 19, 2017 Council meeting, ‘Approval in Principle’ was granted by Council for the disposition of the property to PEG Development.

The property was sold to PEG Development on December 7, 2017 for $750,000. 

The City has the right to repurchase the property for $750,000 should PEG Development not meet its obligations and be under construction within two years.

The Development Permit proposes a 9-storey, 172 room hotel.
