Permit issued for five bay commercial building at Hinshaw and Herder

A five bay commercial building at the corner of Hinshaw and Herder accounted for more than half of the total construction

A five bay commercial building at the corner of Hinshaw and Herder accounted for more than half of the total construction permitted in October.

The building is the second for the complex on the south side of Herder Drive which currently houses a Fas Gas gas bar, convenience store and the Last Chance Liquor Store. Its construction is valued at $1,113,750, according to month-end statistics released by the town Monday.

Among the 19 permits issued during the month were three for new single family homes in Ryders Ridge and one for a single family home completion on Hodgstreet Place. Those four permits totalled $791,612.72 of the month’s tally of $2,050,992.72. The same month last year saw a total of almost $4 million permitted.

Other permits issued in October were for detached garages (4), sheds (2), basement developments (2), hot tubs (2), a wood stove, a covered deck, a demolition and a change in use to permit a social care facility.

To date in 2012, permits have been issued for 72 single family homes, down from 85 issued in the same 10 months last year. However, Sylvan Lake’s residential totals were boosted in 2012 by permits for 88 units in multi-unit residential buildings compared to 18 in 2011.

The pace of construction continues to remain about 50 per cent above the previous year’s tally with almost $45.2 million started this year compared to just over $30 million started last year.
