November was a strong month for building permits, making up 32 per cent of Sylvan Lake’s $40.6 million in permits for 2022.
A total of $13.3 million in permits were issued in November, with a new apartment building on Broadway Rise valued at over $9 million contributing significantly to the high monthly total. The application for the 76 unit building indicates an expected completion date of November 2023.
Another major permit, valued at $1.2 million is a gas bar, convenience store and carwash. Sylvan Lake communications officer Jared Waldo confirmed in an email that this is proposed to be a Shell gas station and will be located at #1 Crestview Blvd. on the corner of Crestview Blvd. and 50 Street in Sylvan Lake.
