Construction on the 71-unit residential condominium development called Riverstone is in the finishing stages.

Siding and interior finishing is underway and nearly complete. Landscaping is set to begin soon and the entire project will be complete by late July. Residents will be moving in as of August.

These condominium units went on sale June 16, with one-bedrooms starting at $160,000 and two bedrooms at $220,000. The units vary in size from 568 to 897 sq. ft.

A building permit with a value of $7.9 million was issued for this project in October of last year. Traine Construction is the general contractor for this project. For more information, go to: www.riverstonecondos.ca/

Adjacent to this project on Cliffe Avenue in Courtenay is a mixed use project called Riverwalk Centre, which includes commercial space on the main floor and condominiums on the upper floor.

This project, along with its sister project Riverstone, are both developed by Highstreet Ventures Inc. Concrete and wood framing of the commercial space and condo lofts on the Riverwalk building are now complete.

Occupancy is still slated for the beginning of December with tenant improvements for the commercial space able to start in September. This building will include 16 condominiums and 14,000 sq. ft. of commercial space on the main floor of the building.

The commercial space is available for sale or to lease. This building is expected to ready for occupancy in November of 2017. Traine Construction is the general contractor for this project. For more information, go to: www.highstreetliving.ca/courtenay/riverwalk-centre

Campbell River council gave third reading to a zoning amendment application to change property zoning and allow for expansion of the Campbell River Golf and Country Club, formerly known as Sequoia Springs Golf Course. The Mailmans, a local Campbell River family, purchased the course March 1 and have some exciting changes planned.

The new vision for the course includes: expanding amenities and revitalizing the course; a renovation to the clubhouse to upgrade the dining room, meeting rooms and banquet facilities; and a state of the art driving range.

A spa and wellness centre is also under consideration for the future.

Approval of the application would update the golf course definition to include retail, accommodation and health and wellness facilities.

Kyle Stoudt, a CPGA professional has been hired as the club’s new Golf Professional and Manager of day-to-day operations.

The grand opening of the Campbell River Golf and Country Club is scheduled to take place in the Spring.
