Anybody Want To Buy An Office Tower?

Here’s a link to a tender that was posted on the Government of Saskatchewan website today stating that SGI was in the market to unload a 184,000 sq. ft. high rise office tower in Regina (presumably the one pictured at left) with further plans to move into a new 210,000 sq. ft office building.

If you recall a few years ago, we had a horrendous windstorm one afternoon that necessitated the evacuation of the SGI tower. It was said at the time, I think, that the building needed some significant structural upgrades. So you might be able to get it for a bargain price.

As for where SGI might be relocating to, for now that remains a mystery. There was talk a couple of years ago about a big-ass office building at the corner of Rose and 12th Ave (currently the site of a surface parking lot). I don’t know what the status of that project is, or if it’s related in any way to SGI.

  1. Everyone could move out of Regina right now, start a new life, and no one would ever miss it. This is your window.

  2. That’s exactly how I feel. It’s like the rapture, only it it’s all the clever creative people who will get hoovered up. Who will be left?Who cares?

  3. @2 Somehow I knew that’s how you’d feel, yet I’ve never even met you…

    Every so often you feel that ‘moment’. The last tyme I felt it, it was in 2005.

    The sad thing is, I’m getting so old, I’ve started to forget the familiar faces I no longer see. And when I see a familiar face returned, it’s almost a shock, cuz no one I know works in oil, gas, or mining, so what could they possibly be coming for? (Tho I did run into one long-lost chum recently; it was a very pleasant surprise.)
