The building needs of the first tenant moving into the former General Motors property in Ontario will be discussed during Thursday night's Ontario City Council meeting.

Third Ward Councilman Mark Weidemyre will also present the plans to the Economic Development Commitee he chairs, prior to the full council meeting.

Weidemyre says the modified agreement would allow the entire main plant to be torn down for construction of a new 500,000 square foot building.

He says Sunfest did a feasibility study and found the old building would be more expensive to removate for its needs than a new building would cost.

David Adler, Executive Vice-President of the Adler Group; a representative of the demolition company; and Roberto Perez, Executive vice President of Adler's partner development company Hilco, will attend both meetings.  

Perez has announced a binding contract has been signed with Sunfest, and he wants to dispel rumors Adler and Hilco are just tearing down the buildings to sell them for scrap, then leave the site empty.

Perez says The Adler Group and Hilco are committed to developing the Ontario Business Park, first for Sunfest, and to attract other companies.
