The Town of Newmarket is pleased to announce that through a very cooperative process with Main Street Clock Inc. (MSC Inc.), a settlement has been reached for the future development of the historic Clock Tower and 184-194 Main Street, Newmarket. This development proposal will mostly consist of renovation within the existing building and could include office, residential and retail uses.
The community can expect the Clock Tower to generally look similar to how it looks today, with heritage elements being maintained. The front of the buildings on Main Street will be restored using appropriate heritage conservation techniques. This development will help to continue to refresh and revitalize Newmarket's downtown core, while paying tribute to the rich history and heritage of the area.
For more information, please view the full media release and the Minutes of Settlement.
