As part of the City of Ottawa’s Confederation Boulevard – Sussex Drive Reconstruction Project, CDS Building Movers was sub-contracted to move two heritage buildings to accommodate the widening of Sussex Drive. The first phase was to relocate a two-storey brick house at the corner of Sussex Drive and Bolton Street back (east) approximately 35 feet. A few weeks later CDS moved a 300 ton brick triplex at 275 – 279 Sussex Drive approximately 40 feet east in order to accommodate the road widening.
CTV News was on site to capture the triplex move and broadcast the story on the 6:00 p.m. evening news on Monday, May 5, 2014.
