The bidding ends today as the Ontario Northland Transportation Commission (Ontario Northland) is offering for sale the historic building located at 195 Regina Street, a central location on the corners of Regina and Oak Street East.
The white building located at 195 Regina off Oak Street went on the market on March 1st of this year.
Built in 1905, the old building formerly housed the Temiskaming & Northern Ontario Railway (T&NO) general office and most recently the Ontera/ON Telcom offices.
The 9,559 square foot building has been vacant though since 2015 but ONR officials say it has been maintained since then and remains in good condition. It also has been a popular filming location the past couple years.
Rebecca McGlynn, Director of Marketing and Communications at Ontario Northland, says the building has an ideal central location and they are excited to see new activity and business in the building.
“New ownership provides an opportunity to further contribute to Oak Street’s renewal,” stated McGlynn in an email.
“It could become a restaurant, a film production studio, an office building. The possibilities for this vacant building are exciting for North Bay.”
Bidders are required to submit a $5,000 bid deposit to place a bid, which is then refunded to all but the winning bidder.
