A divisive plan for a new building in the Byward Market is getting a bit more time to be fleshed out.
Today, city council approved extending the project deadline of 7 Clarence Street until the end of August.
The heritage building - owned by the National Capital Commission - is considered unsafe.
However, before the city approves demolishing it, a plan of what would replace the structure must also be submitted.
An initial proposal of a glass-clad, modern building didn't win over nearby residents, so the NCC is going back to the drawing board.
