City offers update on work set to begin at 652 Princess St.
November 9, 2018 –
Williamsville residents and visitors: work is set to begin on a building planned for 652 Princess St. at the corners of Princess and Victoria streets and Princess and Nelson streets.
"This is a significant development project in the Williamsville District that city council has recently approved. We want to ensure that residents are receiving and have continuous access to key information on what to expect for this complex redevelopment project," says Laura MacCormick, deputy director of planning with the City of Kingston. She notes that the hoarding for the project is expected to be installed on the site in the coming days.
Council has approved the site for a 10-storey, 325-unit condominium with ground-floor retail space being built by Sage Condos. Construction is expected to begin in 2019 and the building should be ready for occupants in the fall of 2020. The builders also plan to retain and restore the heritage Carnovsky Bakery – a 1840s limestone building.
Watch this fall for initial excavation of the site, partial demolition of the building and soil removal. The sidewalks will remain in service throughout the building project and construction vehicles will enter the site off Nelson and Victoria streets. Work will take place Monday to Friday between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.
