New condo owners cut the ribbon, celebrating the opening of their new complex at Mackenzie Village. The ceremony celebrated building one of phase two’s completion on Thursday, February 16. Unit owners could move into their new properties on February 18, 2023.
Building one is the first of four buildings constructed as part of phase two. Phase one saw the completion of seven buildings. Building one consists of 24 units, all of which are sold. Developer David Evans says they expect to see the subsequent building of phase two completed at the end of March or at the start of April.
All 120 units being built as part of phase two have been sold since last January, says Evans, and they are now pre-selling the next phases.
Phase two of the Mackenzie Village development has 17 new commercial spaces. Evans says there are a number of local businesses that are in the process of signing contracts to lease those spaces.
The ribbon for building one was cut in front of developers, city council members and roughly 200 construction workers, including both local and regional contractors. Many companies helping with the build are from out of town. Evans estimates the allowance for out-of-town workers is roughly $40,000 a day, which he says goes back into the local economy.
Major local trades include H&J Ready Mix Concrete, Valley Black Top, Canyon Industrial, Jake & Jay Construction, Revelstoke Alarm, City Furniture, Kelly’s Bobcat, Battersby Plumbing, Hopkins Interior Design, Score Construction, Hive & Co., Revelstoke Pool and Spa, Revelstoke Crane and Rigging, Gutter Done Exteriors, Little Big Works, Artisan drywall, MX Construction, among others.
