First Quarter Construction Statistics Show Construction Values Up Due to Hospital Construction

The new show home by Homes by Crown Isle is under construction on Malahat Drive.

Construction of single family homes, like this one in the Crown Isle Resort & Golf Community, have decreased by 26% in the first quarter compared to last year.

We feature the first quarter construction statistics in this issue. Overall construction values are up by 533% mostly due to the construction of the new hospitals in both Courtenay and Campbell River. Total construction values for 2015 for the Comox Valley region and Campbell River total $188 million. Residential construction is down slightly compared to last year.

Vista Housing Society Holding Open House for Proposed Development on Comox Avenue

The Vista Housing Society is holding an open house on Thursday April 23 from 3:00-7:00 pm at the Comox United Church to inform the community and obtain public feedback on its proposed redevelopment at 2240 Comox Avenue. The Vista Housing Society has proposed an affordable housing development for adults and seniors over the age of 55 that would see a complex with 74 self-contained units built on the site.
