A couple of pics of the Park21 project on Park Ave in Mt. Pearl. These were taken a few weeks ago.

Here are a couple of pics taken last week of the new Suncor (?) buildings on Kelsey Drive. They were "tilt up" construction and are now being finished off inside.

I believe these 2 buildings will be also connected by an overhead walkway. There looks be a square punched out at opposite ends.

Water Street

I'm a new member to the forum but have been a devoted reader for a while. Some great threads here. I was on Water Street yesterday and saw some development happening at the old Irving. Did a little google and the only thing I could find is this add for commercial condominiums, https://www.locatehomes.ca/nl-real-e...B7?id=17315363. Looks like a nice change for the area.

Interesting! Anything that could go there would be an improvement. Welcome to the forum!

Why didn't they just build one 6-story building instead of two 3-story builds with a ridiculously long pedway between them?

Because that would be a more efficient use of land. Why would anyone want to do that in St. John's?

Maybe I missed it here, but does anyone have any idea what's being built between Chess's and the Fairfield Inn on Kenmount Rd? I didn't think on getting a photo at the time but I've attached a link to Google Streetview showing the location (in summer)
https://www.google.ca/maps/@47.55390...8i6656!6m1!1e1
So far it's a single story building of wood construction, a little bigger than Chess's if my memory serves correctly. Thoughts?

That is going to be Fionn MacCools Irish pub and restaurant. It's being built by the owners of the Fairfield Marrriott. Fionn MacCools is part of the same family of restaurants as Kelsey's, Swiss Chalet, Montannas, Milestones, East Side Marios, Bier Markt, and Harvey's which are franchised by Cara Operations.

OK, Thanks! Guess I was getting confused between this development and the restaurant in front of the Sandman Hotel . Fionn MacCools huh? I'll save it for the restaurant thread.

Moxies Bar And Grill is going in the Sandman Hotel and possibly a Denny's too as they are both owned by the same parent company as the hotel.

Another project which seems to have escaped my attention - anyone know what's being built next door to Lane Home Furnishings on Kiwanis St.?

From what I have seen in the past (somewhere?) I think it is supposed to be a four or five unit strip mall, or something similar.

I ran across this the weekend on Kijiji. I hadn't seen anything about the building here.

http://www.kijiji.ca/v-commercial-of...ationFlag=true
rea
https://www.chronosquare.ca/

The best I can figure this would be located in the middle of all the residential area as far in on Moffat Road as you can go. I don't think there is any space near Topsail Road that the building could be built on.

Does anyone have any more details. The web site indicates that a second floor suite is already leased.

What's the timeframe like for this project? St. John's seems to be woefully inadequate on a parks/public space front... what do we have worth mentioning, Bowring and Bannerman?The centre city hardly has anything. A downtown library would be top on my imaginary wishlist...
