Cornwall ON – Cornwall is profiled in the first of two feature articles in the Ontario Construction Report.

The first 8-page feature is titled “Booming building activity in Cornwall revitalizes economy and identity” and covers major development projects happening locally. Some of the projects profiled in the February report include:

  • Cornwall Community Hospital
    • $120 million redevelopment
  • Seaway International Bridge
    • $79 million new construction
  • Benson Centre
    • $33.5 million new construction
  • St. Lawrence College
    • $14 million redevelopment
“This report will help raise the profile of the major development projects that are completed or underway in Cornwall,” said Bob Peters, Senior Development Officer.  “The Ontario Construction Report is read by many of the province’s developers, architects and engineers. The feature also shines the light on several local companies that are working on these major projects.”

Due to the scope and variety of development activity in Cornwall, the publishers decided to expand the article and spread it out over two issues. The second feature will be published in March.

“We were impressed with the number of exciting projects in Cornwall – and what this extensive development activity means for the future of the City.  We think our readers will find the stories compelling,” said Tim Lawlor, Coordinating Publisher – Ontario Construction Report.

Is there any significant private construction going on in Cornwall, besides the covered-over underground garage at Pitt and Second? All the above projects, i.e; the Bridge, the Hospital, the Benson Taxpayer Centre and the St. Lawrence College extension are funded by the tax payer.

A lot of buildings have been going up in the East Industrial Park area, Watcher. Lot of land being cleared too. Looks great. Millions being spent. Over the next 24 months, two thousand new jobs will have been created – about a hundred or two of those will be sit down management. Huge spread in local housing prices now – all over the place. It’s a gold mine, baby.
