Royal Cape Breton Yacht Club Update

Tom Urbaniak

The report is in....and to save the Architectural Integrity of the Royal Cape Breton Yacht Club it would indeed, cost a fraction of the 2 million dollar plus price a local consultant put on the project.

Internationally renowned heritage architect Christ Borgal says the project would cost  at most about three hundred thousand dollars.

Borgal is regarded as the nation's leading expert on heritage building restoration, and has worked on many  of the federal government's National Historic Site designation projects. Work which has earned him an order of Canada.

Tom Urbaniak is a memeber of the community group who invited him to look at the Royal Cape Breton Yacht club building, the Sydney Architectural Conservation Society.
