Ottawa Now – Do the proposed renovation costs for 24 Sussex really add up?


As the vocal majority plans to send 24 Sussex to the scrapyard, some of Ottawa’s heritage groups are shouting back. Not only do they want to save the Prime Minister’s residence from destruction, they argue that the NCC’s restoration costs have been exaggerated, adding that a brand-new building in its place is not guaranteed to cost less. Marc Denhez, who currently serves as the President of Historic Ottawa Development Incorporated, previously served as a member of the NCC’s Official Residences Advisory Committee. He joins Kristy Cameron on Ottawa Now.
