Last year, the City of Courtenay issued 217 building permits with a construction value close to $75 million.

Of this, $37.2 million was for the regional hospital under construction next to North Island College.

Another significant permit was issued for 18 residential units on Crown Isle Drive — The Grove — worth $4.3 million.

The new McDonald’s restaurant at the intersection of Ryan and Lerwick roads accounted for $2 million worth of construction in 2014.

Approval was granted for a 94-residential unit apartment complex dubbed Acadia on the Walk at Cliffe Avenue and Anfield Road, and 93 units at Arden and Ronson roads, among other applications.

Other commercial projects projected for 2015 include development in the vicinity of Ryan, Lerwick and Crown Isle, and the renovation of Vanier Secondary. Residential developments under review include three projects at Arden Road.

The net value of hospital construction last year exceeded $37.7 million — a 22 per cent increase from 2013.

That year, the city issued 197 building permits worth $30.4 million, which was a noticeable drop from the three previous years when well over 200 permits were issued.

Construction value of the hospital is expected to be $140 million this year.
