There is no need for rampant speculation.

From what I recall, there was a range of possible heights of final build.  From mid-rise to high-rise.  But please, someone take a look at get the direct quote.


[EDIT] oh crap, they've locked down access to the documents.  Never mind, there's no looking now.

Did anyone by any chance download the documents, I would be curious to see them?
I did.  All the documents I have are in the following Google Drive folder.

We now know who is looking to do this development. Looks like a good group of builders to me.

The consortium is called the King Victoria Transit Hub Partners Inc., and includes the Perimeter Development Corp., EllisDon Capital Inc. and the Kilmer Group.

Do we know if there were any other bids?

"Despite a significant advertising campaign and indications of interest within the development community, the RFQ process generated only one submission."

The fact the article says they're entering negotiations with the region rather bidding through a proposal process I think confirms they were the only people to answer the RFQ (or at least the only technically compliant one).

It's a common process in large deals like this that if there's ever only one technically compliant bidder then the pricing envelopes are returned unopened (or in this case, never created) and the government enters direct negotiations.

I believe in this case they were the only bidder, period. Or am I mistaken about that?

Only bidder, correct.

They were the only respondent. I believe it was a request for qualifications and there weren't any cost submissions. So if they met the requirements of the RFQ then presumably the Region would negotiate directly with them.

The successful group is a consortium of Perimeter Development Corp., EllisDon Capital Inc. and the Kilmer Group, known as The King Victoria Transit Hub Partners Inc.

How will the process work? Is it the Region or the developer that comes up with the concept? Will the Region need to issue a contract for the design?

I expect that it will be awhile, since the awarding of the project was just recently confirmed. I don't know how long it takes to put a design together, which would need to be approved by the Region.  The other levels of government would probably need to have some input too.

The project wasn't awarded yet!  The consortium will still need to respond to the RFP, even if they are they only ones in the running.  The city might not be able to choose another bidder, but they would still have the option to not proceed if they don't like the proposal.

Quote:The King Victoria Transit Hub Partners Inc. (a consortium of three companies) successfully responded to the Region's Request for Qualifications call for building the new transit hub at King and Victoria Streets, and has qualified to participate in the Request for Proposal process.
