The facility is anticipated to be approximately 77,000 square feet of gross floor area located on a single level with an anticipated hard cost of approximately $24 million dollars ($311.76 per sq ft gross area) inclusive of a 10% contingency and exclusive of artifact display, FF&E, consultants, soft costs and land. The facility is anticipated to include exterior ancillary features such as a large east, north and south facing terrace, a porte‐cochere, canoe basin created by modifications to the west canal wall and a seasonal boat storage house to support on water programs (located a short walk north above the Lift Lock). The facility will be located on the existing Lift Lock visitor centre and southwards to minimize disruption to the National Historic site and will necessitate demolition of the existing structure.
