The process of mediation between the partners of the group RendezVous LeBreton regarding the mega-project redevelopment of LeBreton flats is extended.
The board of directors of the national capital Commission (NCC) has agreed to Monday at the request of the mediator Warren Winkler to postpone to February 28, 2019, the termination of its partnership with the consortium consisting of the owner of the Senators, Eugene Melnyk, Capital Sports Management Inc), Trinity Development Group, and GBA Development and Project Management which would enter into force at the end of this week.
“The national capital Commission reaffirms its commitment to the redevelopment of LeBreton flats. Although she has prepared the next steps for presentation to a future meeting of the board of directors, out of respect for the mediation process in the course (…), the NCC will take no action and shall make no other statement on this subject for the moment, ” said the federal agency in a press release issued Monday evening.
On 19 December last year, the NCC had announced that it broke its agreement with RendezVous LeBreton about the vast real estate project, which includes a new arena for the Ottawa Senators, because of serious problems between Mr. Melnyk and the group Trinity Development, and lawsuits filed against each other. A period of 30 days was provided for the termination of the official agreement.
