This will be called "The Millennium" according to Halifax Apartments - the leasing arm of WM Fares. The name seems a bit dated, about 19 years too late to play on the Y2K craze, however, the 2019 opening date would tie in well with the 20 year anniversary of the release "Millennium" by the Backstreet Boys. Otherwise I am short of a segway from Schmitville to the Trillium.

Maybe they are marketing it to a specific generational group? No 'boomers' allowed?

It does seem like an odd name choice...

Well considering a millennium is 1000 years and we're not even 2% in yet, maybe not so bad. Not sure when the cut off for the use of the term should be. Maybe 5% in?

Fencing is up around the last of the buildings to come down.
