AMHERST – It’s official.
The Town of Amherst council met at the old town hall yesterday and passed a motion authorizing council to enter an agreement for the former Amherst police station at 45 Victoria Street to be sold to J.E. Bembridge Enterprises for $2.
The motion says in part “…Council authorizes the Mayor and CAO to execute a deed of conveyance transferring ownership of the property to J.E. Bembridge Enterprises Limited contingent on the purchaser satisfying their obligations contained within Section 6 of the Agreement of Purchase of Sale.”
Four proposals were submitted by from four different parties interested in developing the property during a special meeting on Oct. 31.
Council accepted the Bembridge proposal because they plan to develop the property immediately.
Conditions of the sale include that, “the purchaser will commence work on clean up and renovations of the building immediately after the sale is complete.”
In a previous interview with the Amherst Daily News, Jeff Bembridge, who owns Duncan’s Pub, said, "I'm looking forward to doing something with the building as soon as we can.”
During the same interview Bembridge said he plans to put a new restaurant in the building. Breakfast at Brittany's, named for his stepdaughter, will be open from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will feature affordable breakfast specials as well as menu items like Belgian waffles and eggs benedict.
