They did pause, I did use Regena and a lot of americans did not know where Sask was. I had that job for 10 years over 4 years ago. 99 Percent of our business was done in the US.

I was out in the northwest yesterday and noticed that Westridge Const. seems to be deconstructing what looks like a warehouse. This is on Devonshire just half a block south of Rochdale and directly behind the condo that was recently built behind the Co-op mall on Rochdale. Anyone know what is happening on that site? I can't even recall what that building actually was that they are taking apart.

That wouldn't be the old Paradise Mini-Golf/Cinemas building, would it?

I do believe that's the one, but as far as I knew, it was a construction zone, not a deconstruction zone. I thought they were just adding to the current building?

You could be right but it does appear that they have taken much of it apart. It almost looks like they are stripping it back to the girders and then rebuilding whatever is going in there.

http:Widening of Victoria Avenue East on hold: report
CTV Regina
Published Monday, May 5, 2014 7:53AM CST

The widening of a major route in Regina may have been put on hold for now.

According to the Leader-Post, plans to expand sections of Victoria Avenue East have been deferred until the proposed Regina bypass route is finalized.

The widening of Victoria Avenue was meant to ease traffic congestion in the east end during rush hour.

However, with the approval of the south bypass, th4e city will re-evaluate the timing and implementation of the project, and instead concentrate on fixing bridges that span the Pilot Butte Creek at Coleman Crescent

Saskatchewan MP Gerry Ritz and provincial Highways and Infrastructure Minister Don McMorris are set to make an announcement regarding the Regina bypass project Monday morning.That project could take upwards of two years to complete.

REGINA -- Up to $200 million will be provided through the P3 Canada Fund for the construction of the Regina Bypass. The province of Saskatchewan will fund the remainder of the project costs, at a level which will be determined through a competitive P3 procurement process.

“This project is another excellent example of how the private sector can leverage greater value for public dollars and deliver infrastructure that will benefit Saskatchewan and create jobs and growth for Canadians,” said federal Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz. “I am proud of our government’s ongoing commitment to developing new infrastructure, and I’m very pleased to support Saskatchewan’s choice to pursue a P3 as a better infrastructure solution.”

“Through the Saskatchewan Plan for Growth, we are committed to addressing the challenges that have come with the unprecedented growth Saskatchewan continues to experience, and creating the conditions for future growth,” said Saskatchewan Highways Minister Don McMorris said. “The Regina Bypass will help address some of the traffic issues we’ve seen on Dewdney Avenue, Victoria Avenue East and at the accesses to the communities on Highway 1, east of the city.”

Quick Facts:

-- A Request for Qualifications (RFQ) will be issued later this month by the province to identify private sector proponent teams interested in bidding on the project.

-- The successful proponent team, once selected, will design, build, finance, operate and maintain the project over a 30 year period.

-- The Regina Bypass will be owned by the province of Saskatchewan.

-- Construction of the bypass is anticipated to take three and a half years and the P3 model is expected to deliver the project on time and on budget.

Reed says Phase 3 of Canterbury Common will be 6 floors of condos over main floor retail plus 3 levels of U/G parking. This is larger than the concept.

Construction stats



Numbers up in April:

Construction activity took a bit of jump in April, with $52.9 million in building permits issued, versus $45.9 million during the same period in 2013, according to the City of Regina monthly building permit report.

I also noticed there is what looks like a new and sizeable construction site on Dewdney avenue, a couple blocks east of Albert, and east of the new hotel going up, anyone know what this is? There are construction trailers on site, fencing and part of Dewdney is blocked off.

I guess it is Harbour Landing after all though, if you live there, you are going to need all the cars you can get.

There is many ways to skin a cat, one way is to lower prices to help move product, one way is to provide an incentive to perk people's interest.

Daytona is slowing production, but not completely stopping like Dundee or Crawford for example.
