New Ottawa City Archives Update: 29 November 2010

The access road from Tallwoods behind the new building has now been installed and street lamps are in place. Some of the exterior finish is yet to be installed.

There is good progress since my last visit on the entrance plaza with the walkway up to the main entrance from the east now installed.  Again, work is still underway on the exterior finish of the building

Looking from the south-west there does not appear to have been much progress on windows and the exterior finish in the past two weeks.

Given likely unfavourable weather and vacation time in December will the building will be ready for the archives to move in at the start of January 2011 as planned? I'm no expert. It looks doubtful. The lease for the present archives location at 111 Sussex Drive expires at the end of December. How will material required to be kept in archival storage be housed in the interim?
