‘Fun centre’ closer to becoming a reality
A virtual reality gaming “family fun centre” in Alexandria is one step closer to becoming a reality.
North Glengarry council has adopted a zoning by-law amendment clearing the way for Ginette and Luc Prud’homme to open the Knight’s VR Virtual Reality Gaming business in a 3,200-square-foot building at 68 Lochiel St., the former location of a Pentecostal church. The by-law change will go into effect if nobody objects by 4 p.m. December 24. In addition to changing the zoning label from “institutional” to “general commercial,” the amendment would reduce the number of parking spaces required from 17 to four.
The fun centre, which would be located on the ground floor, will include a virtual reality gaming station, a video arcade, pool table and snack bar. The second storey would continue to be a residential rental unit.
