The project will be sited just north of the Seaholm Condominiums, currently under construction, and west of the popular 360, in walking distance of…well, just about everything!

Financing considerations will dictate the precise start date, but Constructive Ventures and partner developer Aspen Heights are aiming for the fourth quarter of 2015. Construction is estimated to take two and a half years.
