The building, built in 1898 and part of the city’s built heritage, still shows signs of its age despite conservation work that was carried out on the structure in 1992 and 2017.

The roof of the building is in need of major repairs as water infiltration has caused extensive damage to it and other parts of the imposing structure.

Work on the exterior walls and windows is also planned. The concrete floor also needs to be redone.

The Aberdeen Pavilion, which is also a National Historic Landmark, is in operation 130 to 150 days a year, hosting a farmers’ market, flea markets and galas.

Work is expected to begin in January 2025 and take two years to complete. The cost of the renovations is expected to be determined this fall.

“The rehabilitation of the Aberdeen Pavilion will ensure the conservation of one of Ottawa’s most important and unique heritage buildings that is a landmark in the city,” says the report, which was submitted to the City of Ottawa’s Built Heritage Committee on Tuesday.

The city council is expected to approve the renovation proposal at its meeting Wednesday.
