*Tax Increment Financing Incentive:

Purchasers shall automatically qualify for 20 year Tax Increment Financing (municipal portion only). * Tax Increment Financing means the property owner will not pay any incremental increase in municipal taxes resulting from development on the sites for a 20 year period. Municipal taxes resulting from typical assessment value increases on the base portion of taxes (if applicable), is the responsibility of the property owner.

*CONDITIONS OF SALE

Site Design Conditions:

Purchasers shall have the option to develop both sites A & B as part of one comprehensive site or develop each site separately. Any purchase/development of either development site (A or B) must include all the lands within the respective site. The purchase of any individual titled property in isolation will not be considered.

Building Conditions

In addition to complying with all City of Brandon development and building requirements, a building must be constructed on the site(s) A and/or B purchased with minimum height of three storeys and a minimum total building lot coverage of 40%. If both sites A & B are developed as one compressive site the 40% minimum building lot coverage requirement will be calculated for the site as a whole.

Costs

The purchaser is responsible for all costs related to developing the site including but not limited to, environmental remediation, demolition, landfill tipping, development related costs, permit fees, development charges, servicing, adjacent public realm improvements and legal fees including registration costs and land transfer tax.

Timelines

The purchaser must be in receipt of a building permit for the entire site(s) within a two (2) year timeline from the possession date.

Option to Repurchase

Should the purchaser fail to meet the agreed upon conditions inclusive of any subsequent agreed extensions, the City may elect to repurchase the site(s) (under an Option to Repurchase Agreement) for the value as sold to the purchaser with the purchaser being responsible for the associated land transfer fees. Should the project not proceed, the City will not compensate the purchaser for funds spent through the planning and development process (e.g. testing, studies, site prep).  As part of the Option to Repurchase Agreement, the purchaser shall provide the City with a deposit equaling the anticipated land transfer tax (seperate from the Costs section above) to be held in trust by the City.  In the event that the purchaser cannot develop within the allotted timeline, this deposit shall be used to revert ownership back to the City.  Should the purchaser meet the agreed upon timeline, the funds shall be returned to the purchaser following the issuance of a building permit.

*Purchaser must comply with the minimum conditions of sale to qualify to purchase the lands for the $1.00 asking price and the associated TIF incentive.

A Site Development Profile with additional background information is available to interested purchasers upon request to the City. The profile includes additional information on existing structures, environmental considerations, site servicing, transportation and parking, zoning, and urban design.
