Yacht Club Historical Value

Chris Borgal

The The Sydney Architectural Conservation Society invited restoration architect Chris Borgal to do an assessment of the Royal Yacht club.

The offer to look at the building's heritage value by an expert was made after it was revealed that the yacht club planned to move its main operations out of the historical building in downtown Sydney, leaving the building to a local government agency.

ECBC has no plans for the site, which is why it may be worthwhile to look at the building's heritage value and soundness at this time Not a problem unique to Cape Breton all over Canada the same issue is being discussed and debated.

Old churches, old city hall, old libraries, building that mean something to people and a harder to part with.
