Retail renovations, townhomes and mansion: January’s biggest building projects

About $24 million worth of building permits were issued in Abbotsford in January of 2020.

A 10,000-square-foot expansion to an agriculture/commerical building, improvements to a Parallel Marketplace building, new McCalum Road townhomes and a $1.75 million new house above Sumas Prairie were the largest building projects that received permits from the City of Abbotsford in January.

Compared to most recent months, January saw a relatively low number of building projects kick off, with permits issued for $24 million worth of projects, 43 new units, and about 150,000 square feet of floor space.

The largest single project was a 10,810 square-foot addition to an agri-commerical building on Clearbrook Road, south of Highway 1.

Other major projects include:

• Improvements, valued at about $2 million, to a unit at the Parallel Marketplace shopping centre on North Parallel Road.

• A $1.75 million, 7,000-square-foot “replacement dwelling” at the far eastern section of Old Yale Road, on the hillside to the south of Sumas Prairie.

• Improvements, valued at $1.4 million, to a Clearbrook Road office building just north of South Fraser Way.

• And two new six-unit townhome buildings, each valued at about $1.1 million, set for McCallum Road at the old Towne Cinema site south of King Road.

All building permit information was taken from the City of Abbotsford’s website, which shows issued building permit reports dating back more than a decade.
