Condo Conversion

I was in St. Catherines last weekend and noticed this building being refurbished as condos. Also a lot of the one way streets have been switched to two way. Real progress!

Two new apartment buildings going up in downtown St.Catharines

The St.Catharines Standard reports that two new apartment buildings are being built in downtown St.Catharines. The link to the article is below, two seven storey buildings are underway, one at James and Raymond, the other at Wellington and Lake. I can confirm that construction equipment is digging at both sites.

Looks like both spots were parking lots. That will be nice for densifying Downtown.

As Ive become more & more pissed off with my new camera phone, I found myself on the hockey news & then some how reading about some town called Grimsby that is located in Ontario. That in it self evolved into St. Catharines Ontario which is the closest Metro. A city with a Metro population closing in on half a million people & so little mention here in Western Canada that it is all most a crime... once you see it & its surroundings.

Pics are via Google images ( thank you all up loaders )
Any issues please notify me or fix them.










Sorry its so short, I have yet to go to sleep from the day / night before, so that has taken a toll on the length on this posting.

City looking into Merritton hall as library branch


Jennie Stevens believes there’s a new chapter on the horizon for the former Merritton town hall.

The St. Catharines councillor took issue Monday night with a staff recommendation to declare the Merritt Street property — and the attached old Fire Station No. 4 — as surplus, but she came prepared with a potential solution.

Stevens believes the heritage building, constructed in 1879, could be the ideal home for the Merritt branch of St. Catharines Public Library. The branch is now housed in a mall on Hartzel Road.

She questioned why the city is “paying prime rental costs to a strip mall in the Merritton area,” when within walking distance there is what she believes is an available and suitable building that could house the library branch.

VIA Rail in St. Catharines?

Quote:
St. Catharines wants VIA rail service again


As Niagara continues to make its case for GO train service, at least one city wants to get VIA Rail back on track, too.

St. Catharines council unanimously passed a motion Monday urging VIA Rail and the federal government to restore VIA train service in Niagara that was removed in 2012.

“The VIA option is again back on the table in a viable way,” said Port Dalhousie Coun. Bruce Williamson, who made motion.

Williamson said the request was made previously by St. Catharines but fell on deaf ears.

Council heard the timing may be better now.

$145 million seniors development on old hospital site


A $145-million retirement community development is being planned for the former Hotel Dieu hospital site in St. Catharines by a company with a proven track record in Niagara.

Seasons Retirement Communities, which operates a residence in Welland, announced the massive project on the 10-acre site Thursday.

The company said construction will start this year.

“This is a great news story for economic investment into the community,” said St. Catharines Mayor Walter Sendzik.

“When you look at Seasons and what they’ve done in other communities in Ontario, and you see the kind of investments that they make, it really does set the stage for an exciting redevelopment for a significant property in St. Catharines.”

The project includes 560 retirement units spread out over the site, which sits at 155 Ontario St. near Montebello Park and backs onto Twelve Mile Creek.

Cost of preserving Port Dalhousie piers questioned


The piers in Port Dalhousie have long been a favourite walking spot for Austin Shynal and his rescue dogs.

It’s a place the St. Catharines resident visits often and one he would like to see preserved, but at what cost, he’s uncertain.

Last week, Fisheries and Oceans Canada said the piers, which have been partially closed to the public since April 2015, are in worse shape than initially thought, with engineering investigations finding severe deterioration of the structures.

A report commissioned by the department found no viable short-term repair options to stabilize the piers.

Early estimates for long-term solutions, only some which allow pedestrian accessibility, come with price tags ranging from $23 million to $33 million.

More city money for ailing four-pad


St. Catharines city council has approved spending more cash to fix mounting ice-pad problems at the Seymour-Hannah Sports and Entertainment Centre.

Councillors Monday night heard a detailed report about woes facing Rink 1 — the current focus of repair along with Rink 4.

Afterward, they agreed to add $301,100, plus HST to an original contract for Rink 1 replacement and other modifications.

In November, councillors gave early budget approval to spend $4 million to fix unexpected problems at the 10-year-old, $21.3-million four-pad on St. Paul Street West.

This opinion article gives a little overview of Port Dalhousie projects:


Quote:
Herod: Biding time is a Port pastime


...

Let’s start with Grandson of Port Tower, known in smaller circles as the Union Waterfront development.

After months of silence, Fortress Real Developments introduced the Grandson — 12 storeys, 170 units — at an outdoor shindig this past June.

Since then, nothing for public consumption.

Fair enough. Goodness knows Fortress has a complex maze to manoeuvre through. Indeed, at the June gathering company officials suggested a late 2018 construction start was a realistic target.

Another potential biggie is Rankin Construction’s proposal for a five- to-six-storey residential condo at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 350 site. But even if things go swimmingly — never a sure thing in Port — Tom Rankin said his project faces a two-year approval process.

Perhaps the most intriguing potential development involves the Lincoln Fabrics building.

It has long been seen as a re-purposing project that would delight heritage buffs in the city, given the widespread belief that any developer would take advantage of the building’s historic look rather than destroy it. Think the old Canada Hair Cloth building in downtown St. Catharines.

After the trustees of David Howes’ estate conducted an environmental assessment of the property, which includes the Pier 61 restaurant lands, it was put on the market last summer.

I missed this a month ago. Hopefully Lock Street starts getting built up again, finally.

Port development takes next step


The company behind a long-awaited development project in the heart of Port Dalhousie has submitted a formal planning application to the city.

Fortress Real Developments has tweaked the plans publicly unveiled for Union Waterfront condos last June, giving the 1.5-acre property more retail space, an indoor community space and a parkette.

“The master plan that’s contemplated for the project is truly mixed use,” said Fortress senior project manager Travis Nolan, adding it was submitted to the city this week.

“To have over 10 per cent of the gross floor area of the building dedicated to commercial, retail, restaurant uses and city space is a very significant component for a building like this.

“The focus has been largely on animating all the spaces at grade with those types of uses so that the commercial core of Port will be vitalized.”

He said the Union Waterfront master plan has terraced balconies with heights ranging from three storeys along Lock Street to 14 storeys.

The height is up from 12 storeys a year ago, but down from the formerly approved Port Place project which had a 17-storey, 80-unit tower.

I can't find a website for it, but in the Martindale/Grapeview neighborhood, the Grand Suites Vansickle is going up.

Union Waterfront, on Lock Street in Port Dalhousie, may be close to being built.

An affordable housing building is going to go up at 111 Church Street, at Court Street.

Work to begin on new affordable housing building


By spring 2019, at least 80 families will be able to move into a home they can afford.

Organizations involved in the development of the new Church Street building, however, hope to help far more families than that through its construction.

The building, to be erected where a Royal Canadian Legion hall once stood, will include child-care services, storage units, scooter battery charging facilities, community space and support services.

The eight-storey building will be home to tenants paying rent that is at or below average market rates set by Niagara Regional Housing.
