Two apartments, a clubhouse and a new barn: December’s biggest building projects

City of Abbotsford issued more than $40 million worth of building permits last month

Two new apartment buildings and Ledgeview’s new clubhouse and restaurant were the three largest building projects that began construction in December.

The largest building permit issued by the city in December was for a new mixed-use apartment and commercial building slated for Ventura Avenue in Central Abbotsford.

The value of the project is pegged at $14.5 million. The building, which is being developed by RDC Group, has 125,478 square feet of floor space, and 70 commercial and residential units.

Just before Christmas, the builder of a $9.8 million apartment building at 33633 King Road got their permit to begin construction. The 98-unit building is part of a three-building purpose-built rental project at the intersection of McCallum and King roads.

The city also issued a permit for the start of construction on the new $6 million Ledgeview clubhouse and restaurant. The 14,000-square-foot project finally got the go-ahead in October, after Trans Mountain announced that it was proceeding with construction of an expanded pipeline. The pipeline runs beneath the golf course, and Trans Mountain had promised the city money for a new clubhouse when the project went ahead.

Other major projects include a new 43,534-square-foot poultry barn with a value of $1.25 million on King Road, and $750,000 worth of improvements to a unit at the McCallum Junction shopping centre.

The city issued $42.3 million worth of building permits in December of 2019. They are set to facilitate the building of 189 units and 368,278 square feet of floor space.
