Fairwinds dig now underway

Crews to begin work on existing building in coming months

Construction of a 39-suite condominium building in Nanoose Bay is on schedule and excavation work is expected to be finished in the next two months.

A February, 2018, news release from Fairwinds noted construction of the condo building is “progressing well” and construction crews will be moving forward on construction of the foundation as soon as the bulk excavation is completed. Crews will also begin work on the structural steel work for the existing building within the next two months. Once that work is completed, crews will work on enclosing the building, starting with a new roof.

Fairwinds Landing will be home to a variety of retail shops and services (including a restaurant/pub, coffee shop and marina office) along with an additional 11 townhouse-style residential units. For more info, visit www.fairwinds.ca.
