Check this out. 5 storeys! The lot is ready!

Maki Cove Condominiums, south end Sudbury!


"Maki Cove can best be described as an intimate, subtle and stately building by the lake. It will have a sauna room, steam room, fitness room and hobby room in addition to the multi-purpose suite (also known as the "party suite or common"). Our lobby area is large and has a separate section for a mail room as well as a manager's office. There are two elevators for 39 suites. Each unit will have a designated underground parking spot as well as a designated storage unit on the terrace level." - Dalron Condos

OMG That is uglier than King Arthur Suites!



Hopefully that's just a shitty rendering of it.

To be honest, I don't mind the King Arthur Suites. I mean, it's not as bad as that "pink abortion" you talk about in your Thunder Bay Picture thread.

That Pink Abortion is the 19th tallest thing in town!

But it just clashes with the masterpiece beside it.

I went and snapped some shots of the new Holiday Inn project the other day, it's already up to the start of the third floor, so it shouldn't be long before they have all 5 floors built up. The building is located right at the Southern entrance to the city along the highway 11/17 Bypass, so it and it's neighbouring hotel (which is yet to begin construction) will be the first buildings people see when entering the city from the South. I also took a pic looking up the highway into the city directly across from the hotel site.







Here's a recent pic of the Watersun Condo project on Lakeshore Drive, it'll be finished by the summer.

North Bay seems to be becoming a small high-rise boom capital right now. North Bay never had a Holiday Inn before, I don't think, but now it does. Great location, too.

Yeah, we're doing alright here in NB. Three more new buildings between 5-7 storeys may be built this year too.

Today I took a pic of the new transit terminal project, it looks to be nearing completion.


Here's the Holiday Inn with another storey half way finished.

Look like thunder bay will be starting development this summer. The Marina park master plan was shown for the first time last night and city council is going to approve it. it includes 3, 6-7-8 story buildings at 25-30m just south of the Government of Ontario building. I was talking to the head of the waterfront committee and the mayor and they say investors have already been contacting them about developing the mixed use buildings and the hotel. i cant wait to see the building designs!

I'm actually really impressed by what Thunder Bay's come up with for Marina Park. I had my doubts that they would ever get around to doing anything new there. Best of luck on getting it all built.

They are going through paper work to start dredging the new marina. improvements to the festival/stage area are almost done from last year. and the skateboard plaza and all the paths are getting repaved this year. so the top 1/4 of the map is pretty close to being done. there is also talk about getting started on 1or2 of the condo/hotel buildings in late summer.

Lovely

By the way, that condo I posted pictures of in the second thread (Maki Cove) was re-designed! It's 6 storeys. I can't find any renderings online (I found a rendering in the latest Sudbury Real Estate Book). I'll post some as soon as I find any.

Construction begins on North Bay Regional Health Centre project

NORTH BAY, ON - Construction started today at the new 388-bed North Bay Regional Health Centre to provide residents from North Bay and surrounding communities with improved access to quality health care, announced George Smitherman (shown), Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, at a groundbreaking ceremony with Nipissing MPP Monique Smith.

"The construction of the North Bay Regional Health Centre is important to everyone in the region and I'm so proud to see construction underway," said MPP Monique Smith.

"We are proud that our hospital will be a state-of-the-art facility that will continue to play a vital role in providing health care and treatment to the residents of our region."

"I'm pleased to join my colleague Monique Smith to put the first shovels in the ground as we launch construction to modernize the North Bay hospital to bring even greater access to health care for local residents," said Smitherman.

Smitherman joined Smith, North Bay General Hospital and Northeast Mental Health Centre officials and representatives from Plenary Health to officially launch the construction project.

Plenary Health was selected as the preferred team to build, finance and maintain the North Bay Regional Health Centre.

Construction is expected to be completed in 2010.

As a three-storey general hospital, the new North Bay Regional Health Centre's redevelopment project will be significantly larger and equipped to offer more services than the present two-site operation.

It will also include the new Northeast Mental Health Centre, a two-storey facility that will recreate a home-like, village environment.

Services at the new hospital will include:

- A larger emergency department with 32 treatment beds;

- A consolidated ambulatory care centre;

- Capacity for up to 275 acute care, complex continuing care, rehabilitation and acute mental health beds.

The new Northeast Mental Health Centre, which will be linked to the general hospital, will have capacity for up to 113 specialized mental health beds and serve all of northeast Ontario.

"I would like to thank our hospital staff, volunteers, fundraisers and the community for their generous donations and support for this project," said Mark Hurst, North Bay General Hospital President and CEO.

"This truly is a celebration for us. We are looking forward to this project being completed and our one-site hospital being available for all members of our community."

Plenary Health will be paid $551 million in today's dollars over 30 years to build, finance and maintain the new 720,000 square foot facility.

Just over half of that represents the pure construction cost.

During the three-year construction period, the project will employ an average of 200 workers on site daily.

Infrastructure Ontario will work with the North Bay General Hospital and the Northeast Mental Health Centre to manage the construction of the North Bay Regional Health Centre, which will remain publicly owned, publicly controlled and publicly accountable.

Infrastructure Ontario is a Crown corporation dedicated to managing some of the Province's larger and more complex infrastructure renewal projects - ensuring they are built on time and on budget.

The project is guided by principles outlined in the Province's Building a Better Tomorrow framework, which ensures public ownership of core assets such as hospitals, schools and water and wastewater facilities.

The North Bay Regional Health Centre project is one of many infrastructure projects being constructed, upgraded and modernized under ReNew Ontario, the government's five-year, $30-billion plus public infrastructure investment plan.

Backgrounder

The North Bay Regional Health Centre is a partnership between the North Bay General Hospital and the Northeast Mental Health Centre.

For the first time in Canada, an acute hospital and a specialized mental health centre will co-locate on the same site.

The North Bay General Hospital (NBGH) and its predecessors have served the families of North Bay and the surrounding area for over 100 years.

The North Bay General Hospital is a district referral centre serving the districts of Nipissing and Temiscaming.

NBGH's Emergency Department and outpatient clinics serve more than 40,000 patients every year. Specialist services such as orthopedics, neonatal intensive care, paediatrics, ophthalmology, obstetrics/gynaecology, urology, ENT (ear, nose and throat) and general surgery are provided for patients from throughout the entire district served.

The Northeast Mental Health Centre (NEMHC) is a specialized mental health centre that provides service to people throughout the region of northeast Ontario suffering from severe and persistent mental illness.

Based on a recovery approach, NEMHC works with other service providers and patients and their families in the design and implementation of care.

Programs include specialized adult mental health, senior's mental health, forensic psychiatry, outreach programs and a regional children's psychiatric service.

As a three-storey general hospital, the new NBGH's redevelopment will be significantly larger and equipped to offer more services than the present two-site operation.

The Northeast Mental Health Centre has been designed as a
two-storey facility that will provide a best-practice approach to care in a home-like, village environment.

One of the largest public sector projects in the region's history, the NBRHC will total 720,000 square feet of new construction on an 80-acre site.

The New North Bay General Hospital includes:

- A larger emergency department with 32 treatment beds to accommodate more than 57,000 patients per year;

- A new consolidated ambulatory care centre to accommodate more than 63,000 patient visits per year;

The hospital's 275 acute care beds include:

- A 40-bed mental health unit relocated from the Northeast Mental Health Centre;

- An increased bed capacity in the Critical Care Unit (from 10 to 16 beds), in the Complex Continuing Care Unit (from 10 to 42 beds), and in the Rehabilitation Care unit (from 10 to 29 beds).

The New Northeast Mental Health Centre

The new Northeast Mental Health Centre will be linked to the general hospital via a shared entrance and several shared common areas.

It will serve the whole of northeast Ontario, and accommodate:

- 52 forensic psychiatry beds;

- 61 specialized mental health beds;

- A client services mall, gymnasium, workshops, psychiatric offices, clinical and administrative spaces;

- Outreach services.

Design features provide a healing atmosphere throughout the facility with lots of natural light provided by windows that overlook the natural environmental setting of the 80-acre site.

The North Bay Regional Health Centre will have a total of 388 beds.

Over North Bay Regional Health Centre's three-year construction period, there will be an average of 200 workers on site daily.

Construction has begun, once again, on the new phase at the Sudbury Regional Hospital. The parking lots will be gone, so it'll be pretty hectic.

Yeah, I highly doubt everything will go as planned with a project of that size, if I find a good rendering I'll post it.

Until then, here's a pic I took today of the new transit terminal - it's almost complete now!

Any heated inside bits? Or is it going to be just a glorified bus hut on a platform?
