Paula Simons: Ukrainian museum to sell heritage Brighton Block to local developer Ken Cantor
The long-derelict Brighton Block — a Jasper Avenue heritage landmark — may soon have a new owner. And a new future.

The building’s current owner, the Ukrainian Canadian Archives and Museum of Alberta (UCAMA), has just come to an agreement to sell the 1912 building to Edmonton businessman Ken Cantor and his company, Primavera Development Group.

The list price for the property at 9666 Jasper Avenue was $2.35 million, but Cantor and UCAMA won’t reveal the final price until the sale closes in April.

The deal, Cantor says, is still conditional on getting support from the city for his plans. He’s not asking for any grant money, he says. He does want the city to allow him to add a fourth floor to the three-storey building and to create a few more rear parking stalls.

“It’s a classic building,” says Cantor. “We’re not doing this willy-nilly. We want to do this right.”

Edmonton developer wants to bring life back to east Jasper Avenue area with purchase of Brighton Block
Those who have been on the east end of Jasper Avenue recently have seen a building covered in shrink wrap.

If you have good knowledge of Edmonton, you’ll know that what’s underneath the wrap is part of the city’s history. It’s the old Brighton Block which has been around for more than 100 years.

The Ukrainian Canadian Archives and Museum of Alberta is selling the property to local developer Ken Cantor and his company, PRIMAVERA Development Group.

Cantor has promised to bring renewal to the building and life back to the quiet area of Jasper Avenue, helping with The Quarters redevelopmentefforts.

Update from Ken Cantor via C2E:

unfortunately the financing that was originally presented as being available to us when we started the process has fallen victim to changing lender criteria and requirements. it is something we are continuing to pursue along with other debt/equity alternative solutions. the vendor is also looking at other alternatives with the good news being that regardless of the final outcome something positive should be happening with the building.

Wraps are off, sounds like work is starting on this one soon. @Marcanadian might be time to turn this into a construction thread?
