CBC/Radio-Canada announced Monday that the Treasury Board of Canada has approved the new Maison de Radio-Canada construction project led by Broccolini, near its present location on René-Lévesque Blvd. E. near Papineau Ave.
The approval also includes the sale of the existing facility and western part of the lot to Groupe Mach. Construction will begin this summer, and Radio-Canada is scheduled to take possession in early 2020 as the sole tenant under a 30-year lease. Redevelopment of the western part of the property will start after the public broadcaster has completed its move.
