There is now a tower crane for the building in the 2nd photo above, so that makes two side by side and three in the general area. Bedford DJ you must be pretty pumped! The other lots in the area are in various stages of development, work on the footings for the strip mall across from the new school have begun.

Most of the steel framing appears to be up for the commercial builing. It appears to be a small rectangular box style.

They were installing power lines down Larry Uteck Blvd today so I'm assuming they will pave the road soon.

Also two more sites have been cleared for development immediately up the hill and down the hill from the six storey building under construction.

The steel frame building will be a small strip mall, it took them only two days to put up the steel. Foundation forms are going up across from the two buildings with the tower cranes (beside the single building). The road would be paved May 1st at the earliest, that's when Dexter will open their asphalt plants, but even then I don't think there's a real rush for the paving at the moment, lots of other work to be done. The lot just to the east of the school is currently being cleared and the lot to the west of the field is clear and has had many visitors in the last few days. Definitely lots of activity in the area, most of it is concentrated near the highway side working on the underground infrastructure on those streets.

No photos however land is being cleared for two of the residential buildings west of Southgate Drive (towards the interchange) and it appears one other lot across from the sportsfield has already been cleared.

Larry Uteck is now paved to the far end of the sportsfield. Part of the Larry Uteck/Starboard/Nine Mile roundabout has been poured and it will be one lane by the look of it.

I didn't bother trying to sneak photos of the area stretching down to the roundabouts since construction crews were on site however here are some other photos from the area;

Looking good. I was talking to a friend of mine who says the subdivision on the otherside (by the RIM offices) is already starting to take shape and they are selling house plans already.

He emailed some to me; as I was thinking of getting in early when they were cheap - they look pretty impressive. I'm quite happy that Halifax hasn't taken on the snout house crazy like the western provinces have; with the enormous garage's sticking out front of the houses. God - they are just tacky.

Here's the official website as well; http://www.theparksofwestbedford.ca/

This 12 storey building will be quite attractive. The architect on it is Lydon Lynch - not typically who you would expect to be doing an apartment building in the suburbs. Features lots of glass & spandrel & will have a sweet 2 level penthouse suite on the 11th/12th floor - lots of glass & fabulous views. If memory serves, it is pushing 3000SF. Apparently going to be a second 'twin' tower later on.

The rent will have to be pretty steep in this one to make the cost/benefit ratio attractive!

Good to hear.

This building will be very visible along the Basin so its good to hear it will be high quality.

Welcome to the forums, BTW.
