LeBreton Flats: Partnership issues within RendezVous LeBreton Group

National Capital Region—The partners in RendezVous LeBreton Group (RLG), composed of Trinity Development Group Inc. (Trinity) and Capital Sports Management Inc. (CSMI), advised the National Capital Commission (NCC) on November 8th, 2018, of unresolved issues within their partnership. The NCC Board of Directors will proceed, in consultation with the Fairness Monitor, as well as with key stakeholders such as the Government of Canada and the City of Ottawa, with next steps either within the established solicitation process or within a new process at the January 2019 Board meeting.

Recent developments

In January 2018, the NCC Board of Directors approved the main business terms (term sheet) that will form part of a master development agreement (MDA), and directed staff to pursue the second stage of the solicitation process with RLG, the preferred proponent, on an exclusive basis.

The requirement to provide evidence that the partners had resolved their internal partnership issues was clearly set out by the NCC as an essential deliverable by November 1, 2018. At RLG’s request, the NCC extended the deadline to November 8, 2018, while the partners sought to reach a resolution. On November 8, 2018, Trinity and CSMI advised the NCC that they had not been able to resolve their internal partnership issues.

The NCC remains unequivocally committed to the redevelopment of LeBreton Flats to the highest standards of design, accessibility, sustainability and connectivity.

Next steps

At the January 2019 Board meeting, the NCC will proceed with next steps either within the established solicitation process, or within a new process.
