Seven construction liens filed against Thunder Bay hotel only two months after its opening


Ontario Construction News staff writer

The Delta Marriott Hotel in Thunder Bay has had seven construction liens registered against it only two months after its May opening. (The project has experienced many delays – it was originally to be completed in 2016.)

CBC Thunder Bay reports that general contractor BNL Marina Developments Inc. registered the largest lien, for $9,102,844, on an overall project value of $26,064,256.

Six subcontractors have also registered liens, including:

  • $654,460 to Keating Insulation Inc.;
  • $549,981 to North West Electric;
  • $446,954 to West Four Group of Companies Inc.;
  • $423,210 to M.F. Jones Acoustics;
  • $160,680 to Lakehead Ironworks Inc.;
  • $160,150 to Northern Sheet Metal and Contracting Inc.;

CBC reports the documents show the building’s owner are T.B. Properties L.P. and a numbered company, 1876030 Ontario Inc., registered to a Winnipeg address shared by the ReSolve Group, the developer of Prince Arthur’s Landing.

As well, there is also a “Caution – Land”registered since May 14, 2019 for $2 to T.B. Properties LP from Hillmount Capital Inc., a Toronto-based lending firm. A caution registered on the property means there is another party, other than the actual property owner, who has an interest in the land.

The waterfront hotel has had earlier payment problems. Previous general contractor ManShield Construction filed $1.4 million in liens in 2015. These liens, along with 10 others, have since been discharged. There were also liens placed, then discharged, at Prince Arthur’s Landing, also built by the ReSolve Group.
