A developer intends on developing the former PT market into five-suite motel.

Motel proposed for former PT Market site

A local developer is planning on turning the old PT Market building into a small motel.

A local developer is planning on turning the old PT Market building into a small motel.

An application by Peter Humphreys to develop the property is set to go before council on Apr. 14.

The plan is for a motel with five suites to be built on the property, which is located at 1403 Victoria Road, next to Jacobson Ford.

The motel would be built in two phases. Phase one would see the existing structure be developed into four units. The second phase would see a two-storey suite be built with a rooftop patio attached.

Humphreys purchased the property in April 2011 after the PT Market closed down and he has been attempting to develop it since.

Developing the motel would require a number of zoning amendments, including changing setbacks and expanding parking space.

Humphreys is also asking for permission for a digital LED board to be used as a changeable copy sign in order to market the motel and provide information to potential customers. Humphreys, of course, is the man behind the humorous and controversial sign that was stationed on the site until last year.

You can read the report on the development and see design plans below:
