Properties & Development


Land development is booming in our city - look to the skyline and you'll see construction cranes in just about every direction.

We currently have 10 cranes in operation and our building permit value is strong with about $387 million in construction value generated in 2012. Council recently approved a phase-in of the development charges increase over a three-year period to ensure we keep this vital growth in our community.

A recent project is the development of the former NCR lands at Northfield and Weber. This exciting multi-million-dollar project will see office space, a data centre, restaurants and potentially a hotel. It also has the potential to create about 4,500 jobs.
