It was on the agenda as a project going ahead this year. It was mentioned in one of these threads not long ago.

Edit: found it

2017/2018 - Manga Hotels Group - construction of a Hilton Garden Inn with 155 guest rooms and 5,000 sq. ft. of conference facilities located at New Gower Street/Springdale Street/ Pleasant Street. (St. John's)

2017/2020 - KMK Capital Inc. - development of "Tiffany Towers", two 16-storey buildings consisting of a total of 240 residential units as well as a three-level underground parking garage. (St. John's)

Thanks! Good to see that it's not completely dead in the water. Albeit, it's moving along at a snail's pace. Something we're all very used to around here....

So that document says start/end 2017/2020...

~3 years seems like a long time to build that..I'm guessing that end date is much more accurate than the start date.

It is good to see this development isn't dead in the water. However, it seems that when major capital projects are updated every year this project is included with a construction dates pushed back. It's been going on since this project has been proposed 6-7 years ago. Alas, I do hold out hope this projects breaks ground... it's just been such a long time.

Your link doesn't work for me. I keep getting an internal server error.

As much as I would love to see this project proceed I really don't see it happening anytime soon. Right now there is a glut of new senior / assisted living projects either under construction (Airport Heights, Blackmarsh Rd, Waterford Bridge Rd) or planned (Pleasantville (2 projects)). Having this show up year after year on the Government's Economic Outlook is window dressing, makes it look like there are big plans ahead...Onward!

That was a bad link, here's the correct one -
https://www.economics.gov.nl.ca/E201...alProjects.pdf

There's some projects listed for St. John's I hadn't seen before and some that aren't on there - the Bishops College redevelopment for example, given parking relief at City Council this week - perhaps it's the"Winslowe Ridge" mentioned. There's mention of a $3M Anglican Ministry Centre but not the 10 storey proposed building.

At what stage does a project get included? Churchill Park rental building, Shoppers redevelopment on Freshwater?
